It is our aim to recognise and encourage the valuable and enriching contribution that people from all backgrounds and experiences bring. We believe that all individuals should be treated based on merit and without prejudice. We provide a service to our patients that promotes equality of healthcare and freedom from discrimination on grounds of age, cultural background, class, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, faith, working status, language, and an individual’s health status.
We believe in fairness and equity and value diversity in all its dealings, both as a provider of health care and an employer. We aim to embed its equality and diversity values into everyday practice, policies and procedures so that equality and diversity becomes the norm for all.
