Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust is a teaching hospital with sites in Brighton, Hove and Haywards Heath. The hospital is staffed by over 8,000 people.

We are committed to equality and diversity for our staff and patients. This means that we aim to create a fairer society, that is equally accessible to all, while recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense.

By working closely with community groups, local commissioners and local government we are continuously looking at ways we can improve our services to meet the needs of the local population. We believe that any form of discrimination whether it is based on age, gender, gender identity, disability, race, sexual orientation, faith or religion is unacceptable and will be dealt with appropriate action.

We have a zero tolerance culture to any form of abuse and violence (verbal/physical) and any violation of this policy may effect employment for staff, and ability to visit or be treated for general members of the public.
