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 8,900 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.

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 goes against the values and directives of the Equality Act 2010 and the principles underpinning the UN Declaration of Human Rights 1948.

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