Equality, diversity and inclusion continue to be at the heart of the NHS strategy.
Investing in a diverse NHS workforce enables us to deliver a more inclusive service and improve patient care.
Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Diversity is about recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense. Inclusion is about an individual’s experience within the workplace and in wider society and the extent to which they feel valued and included.
NHS Employers' diversity and inclusion team represents the views of NHS organisations on equality and diversity issues and also offer a broad range of advice, guidance and practical support for trusts.
