Across the world, effective, safe, high quality patient care is inextricably linked to healthy healthcare workers, and equality, diversity and inclusion directly affects staff and all aspects of organisational culture.

The aim of the Equality Hub is to inform, support and assist BSUH NHS Trust, and beyond, to promote equality, diversity and inclusion for all patients, communities and NHS staff. With our increasingly complex and networked health service – across structures, economies, systems and communities – our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion needs to be consistent, transparent and up-to-date in the NHS.

Sharing best practice, resources and learning across different parts of the healthcare service will help to deliver fair and equitable services to patients, communities and staff.

The Equality Hub covers topics such as the protected characteristics included in the Equality Act 2010: age, race (ethnicity, nationality), disability, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and religion or belief. It also provides information on human rights events, resources for equality trainers and guidance for patients.
