The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team
Our aim is to inform, support and assist BSUH NHS Trust, and beyond, to work towards fairness for all patients, communities and National Health Service (NHS) staff and to deliver on our Public Sector Equality Duty.
What is the Equality Hub?
The resources on this blog are to empower, inform, share best practice and learning with others. Because, no matter where you are, effective, high quality, safe, equitable patient care is inextricably linked to a consistently fair working environment for staff. Equality (perception, practice and commitment) directly affects all aspects of organisational culture, structure and operations.
We believe that our increasingly complex and networked health service – across structures, economies, systems and communities – necessitates a consistent, transparent and pioneering approach by the NHS in the areas of equality, diversity and inclusion. And, the Equality Hub is our contribution to the work being done in the NHS.
BSUH NHS Trust recognises that staff and those who access our 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.
