Our Approach to Inclusion and Diversity

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are committed to actively recognising and promoting inclusion and diversity.  We believe that people who use our services, their carers and our staff should be treated with respect and dignity.  As a public body within the NHS the Trust is committed to taking positive steps to ensure fair and equitable access to services for all.

We are committed to challenging discrimination in all its forms and ensuring that equality lies at the heart of everything we do.  We want to be a fair and unbiased organisation, one where everyone accepts difference between individuals and values the benefits that diversity brings.

As a provider of services we need to be pro-active so that we can meet the changing needs of diverse communities and provide fair access for all in an environment where dignity and individuality is respected and promoted.

As an employer we will create an organisational culture in which diversity is valued and staff, feel able to promote equality and challenge unlawful discrimination.
