Putting patients first underpins the values of professional healthcare workers, the NHS Constitution and BSUH NHS Trust. In 2019 the Care Quality Commission rated BSUH as ‘Outstanding’ for caring. The Equality Hub was established in 2015 as a go-to resource for healthcare staff and others interested in equality and human rights.
BSUH NHS Trust works to ensure that staff and those using hospital services do not experience discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
