Patient First‘ is Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) NHS Trust long-term approach to transforming services. And, equality and diversity thinking and practice lies at the heart of this, underpinning all the work that the NHS does.

“We can no longer afford to ignore the wealth of evidence that where staff are treated with respect, discrimination is challenged and difference is welcomed, that staff talent blossoms, turnover declines and patient care and safety improve.” Roger Kline, 2018

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.
