‘Patient First‘ is Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) NHS Trust long-term approach to transforming services. Equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives, policies and processes supports the organisation to achieve this. The Equality Hub website is managed and run by the Department of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at BSUH NHS Trust. We cover a wide range of topics to help staff, patients, the public and other interested people and organisations learn about and promote EDI aims and objectives.
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.
