BSUH NHS Trust recognises that staff and those who access services come from diverse backgrounds, and may face the possibility of multiple discrimination. It strives to ensure that they do not experience discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. Note: all BSUH NHS Trust policies cover transgender and non-binary identities and people who are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
