Diversity, Inclusion & 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.  We appreciate that to accommodate the needs of the diverse community we serve and to provide fully inclusive services, our staff must have a thorough understanding of equality, diversity and human rights.

Equality for all

We aim to provide fully inclusive services that are appropriate to everyone’s needs,  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 set of Equality Objectives 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.

LGBT+ history month

February marks the celebration of LGBT+ history month and gives us the chance to look back, reflect and help celebrate how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, but to also look at the areas of work still outstanding and where changes still need to be made.
