Equality, diversity and inclusion

This section brings you the latest news on legal requirements, current and planned work on equality and diversity within the Trust and the wider NHS, some good practice examples and useful contacts/links to other websites or sources of information.

The Trust’s commitment to equality and diversity underpins all our activities, within service delivery, employment and our involvement with the wider community.  For us, it is respect for the individual person which is our key belief. We recognised that individuals have a range of needs and identities and we aim to take a broad and inclusive approach to equality and diversity with the information that we have provided.

We believe that the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust has an important role to play not only in improving the health and social care services for our local population but also in the continuing regeneration of the City of Wolverhampton as a vibrant multicultural and diverse community. We are committed to eliminating discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity in all we do.
