As an NHS organisation, we have both a legal and moral duty to demonstrate fairness and equality to our patients, service users, their carers and families, and to our employees.
This strategy explains and responds to the Trust’s statutory duties to promote equality amongst all groups of people. It replaces and builds on our previous Equality Strategy 2013 - 2017
The Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy (2019 – 2022) will guide practical work within the organisation aimed at continuing to implement the commitment to equality and as such, will be reviewed and monitored on a regular basis.
We have involved all stakeholders (including staff, patients, carers, partners, governors and members of diverse communities and their representatives) in the development of this Strategy.
We will also ensure that all stakeholders have a real influence in implementing the Strategy in order to achieve demonstrable benefits for everyone.
