Equality and diversity
We are committed to ensuring everybody, irrespective of their, age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, (including nationality and ethnicity), religion or belief, sex (male/female) or sexual orientation should have equal access to services and that services should, as far as possible, be sensitive to individual needs.
We are also committed to ensuring our workforce can respond fully to the needs of all our patients and service users. To help us to achieve this, our staff, where possible, should reflect the diverse communities we serve, as this can make a significant contribution towards equitable access and commissioning appropriate and sensitive services.
