What is the Equality Hub?
Across the world, effective, high quality, safe, equitable, patient care is inextricably linked to a fair working environment for staff. Equality (perception, practice and commitment) directly affects all aspects of organisational culture, structure and operations.
The aim of the Equality Hub is to inform, support and assist BSUH NHS Trust, and beyond, to work towards equality for all patients, communities and National Health Service (NHS) staff. With our increasingly complex and networked health service – across structures, economies, systems and communities – our approach to equality needs to be consistent, transparent and pioneering in the NHS.
Sharing best practice, resources and learning across different parts of the healthcare service will help to deliver fair services to all patients, communities and staff.
The Equality Hub covers a wide range of topics: protected characteristics covered under the Equality Act 2010; employment law; advice for equality trainers; debate about all aspects of equality and human rights; discussion points around equality theory; recognition of the main global human rights events.
