Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
This is the place of empowerment
When it comes to inclusion, we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk. Inclusion is a value that is lived not just by words but by our actions and culture we create.
To us, the diversity of our people is a strength that enables us to achieve the high ambitions we set ourselves. So, we work hard to unlock talent and break down any structural inequalities that may still exist within public service. After all, we know that in order to attract the best people, we need to value and reward them fairly. And, only by doing so, will we ensure that we provide the highest quality care equally to all our patients, across the diverse communities we serve.
Our empowering culture aims to enable everyone to bring their whole selves to work and enjoy the support and confidence needed to develop and grow. To ensure this, we are clear on discrimination. We have zero tolerance of any sort of racial abuse whenever and wherever it arises, directly or indirectly. We’re also a pledged employer to the Time for Change social movement, committing to end mental health discrimination in the workplace. It is our duty to enrich the lives of our patients and service users and only by becoming a better and more equal place to work, will this be possible. We commit to change attitudes, educate others, develop resources and encourage staff to speak up and speak out when they feel they are being treated unfairly.
We’re proud of our track record to date and the fact that we’ve been included in the Top 50 most Inclusive UK employers’ list. While we have a lot to celebrate though, we will never become complacent. We are continually working to raise the bar and make sure that inequalities are never a barrier to our people, patients, carers, or volunteers.
