Equality & Human Rights
At Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, we recognise that Liverpool and the surrounding areas are made up of a variety of different communities, each with their own needs and priorities. This same variety of needs applies inside the Trust as well as outside and is reflected in the diversity of our workforce.
Equality for all
We are working towards bringing equality to all the services we provide and are committed to being an organisation within which diversity is valued and appreciated, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sex or sexual orientation. We recognise that everyone is different and we value the unique contribution that individual experience, knowledge and skills can make in achieving our goals at all levels in the Trust. As a priority, we will continue to develop our organisational culture by providing whatever training and information is necessary to raise awareness of diversity and to deliver services that promote equality and embrace diversity which are valued by everyone who uses them.
Our commitment in action
We have developed a Single Equality Scheme and an associated Action Plan that together show how committed we are to promoting equality of opportunity and to tackling discrimination around access to health services and around the way our staff are treated. We believe that our approach meets the public sector duties set out by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. We strive to deliver services that take account of the human rights of every patient and member of staff.
