The Trust works hard to meet the diverse needs of its local population and staff by making sure that no person is ever at a disadvantage when it comes to their healthcare or place of work. 

Committed to providing high quality and safe care for all, the Trust upholds a culture in which all people are valued and respected. 

As an NHS organisation, the Trust has a duty to protect all people that use its services, such as patients, staff and volunteers, from any form of discrimination in relation to a personal characteristic. 

The promotion of the Equality Act 2010 throughout the Trust creates an environment in which everyone feels valued and able to give their best.

To achieve this, we follow the principles and guidelines set out in NHS England's EDS2 (Equality Delivery System).
