Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust views diversity positvely and we are continually reviewing our progress in advancing equality and diversity.
The Foundation Trust’s commitment may be summarised by our diversity statement, as follows:
'At Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust we are committed to providing the highest quality clinical and working environment where all staff, patients, visitors and contractors can be employed, cared for, welcomed, respected and treated in a consistent and non-discriminatory manner. This approach will be applied irrespective of age, disability, gender re-assignment, race, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity. We will underpin our commitment by ensuring our current and future clinical services, policies, procedures, recruitment and development programmes are all fairly and consistently applied, and regularly assessed and monitored.'
We hope you find the information on our equality and diversity pages helpful and informative. Do let us know if you have any ideas regarding other information you would like to see here or any feedback about this site and its contents that you may have.
Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week 2018
The seventh Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week #EQW2018 is taking place from 14 – 18 May. Co-ordinated by NHS Employers, the event is a national platform for organisations to highlight their work to create a fairer, more inclusive NHS for patients and staff. The theme once again for this year is diverse, inclusive, together and has been chosen to reflect the move across the health and social care sector towards collaboration and integration - as reflected in the Five Year Forward View and the emergence of Vanguards and sustainability and transformation plans.
Working together makes the NHS stronger; we meet standards, enable change and collectively invest in the creation of a diverse and inclusive NHS workforce to deliver a more inclusive service and improved patient care.
The focus for the week, and beyond, will be for us to shine a light on our local initiatives that are driving change to make our organisation fairer and more inclusive for our staff, patients and visitors. Features include celebrating our local initiatives through staff videos, holding a series of staff focus groups and workshops and to test your knowledge through a mythbuster.
