Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust views diversity positively and we are continually reviewing our progress in advancing equality, diversity and inclusion.
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.'
The current team working with managers, staff, patients, volunteers, governors and other organisations to promote equality, diversity and inclusivity consists of:
- Rebecca Meads, Equality and diversity adviser
- Jane Davies, Patient experience and volunteer manager
The Board Executive Director with lead responsibility for equality, diversity and inclusion is Catherine Hope-MacLellan, the Foundation Trust’s Director of People.
Accountability for achieving equality, diversity and inclusion performance rests with the Foundation Trust’s executive directors and senior managers, and collective accountability with the Foundation Trust’s Divisional Boards and Executive Committee.
