We are equally committed to attracting and developing a diverse workforce that properly reflects the communities we serve. We aim to provide equality and fairness for all, and not to discriminate on any basis.
Our legal responsibilities are set out in the Equality Act 2010. We work closely with local people, patients, providers, staff and voluntary organisations to help reduce inequalities and eliminate any discrimination within our services and working environments.
