Promoting Equality

Child being assessed

The Trust is committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity and protecting human rights.

This commitment includes working to eliminate discrimination against employees, patients, services users and carers on the grounds of age, disability, gender (or gender reassignment), marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

We recognise that everyone has different needs in relation to public services, and that in both the workplace and as service users, certain individuals/groups of individuals can experience unfair and unequal outcomes. To assist us in understanding and taking action where necesarry, the Trust will implement the Department of Health's Equality Delivery System (EDS) for the NHS.

Implementing this system will help us to meet the commitment set out above as well as those contained within the Equalities Act 2010.
