Inclusion and Diversity Strategy 2016-2020

As an NHS organisation, we have both a legal and moral duty to demonstrate fairness and equality to our patients, service users, their carers and families, and to our employees. This strategy explains and responds to the Trust’s statutory duties to promote equality amongst all groups of people. It replaces and builds on our previous Equality Strategy 2012 - 2016.

A four week consultation was undertaken during May and June 2016 to encourage public, patients, staff, governors, local community groups and other organisations to express their views on our visions and values and key priorities. Overall all respondents agreed with the Trust’s approach to implementing inclusion and diversity within the Trust. All feedback was reviewed and where applicable has been included / updated within this strategy.

Inclusion and Diversity Strategy 2021-2025

Our current I&D Strategy expired at the end of 2020 and due to the Covid Pandemic is yet to be agreed.  It is important that we take the time to reflect the learning from the pandemic in our strategy and objectives, as national media coverage has demonstrated that Covid has disproportionately affected some protected groups and exacerbated health inequalities.

In light of this, members of the Executive Team are in the process of reviewing our strategic approach to EDI, how we monitor and provide assurance and how we can work not only within our organisation, but across the local borough to develop objectives and an EDI Strategy that effectively addresses these crucial issues.
