Putting patients first frames and underpins the NHS Constitution. Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) National Health Service (NHS) Trust has a long-term approach to transforming services called ‘Patient First‘. In 2019 the Care Quality Commission rated the Trust as ‘Outstanding’ for Patient Care.
Equality, diversity and inclusion teaching, training, initiatives and processes helps support BSUH NHS Trust to deliver equitable care and a fair working environment.
The Equality Hub website is managed and run by the Department of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at BSUH NHS Trust. A wide range of topics are covered to reflect our diverse staff, patients and the public. The information can also be used by those interested in the subject matter and organisations that wish to learn about the aims and principles of equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights.
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.
