Join us on our actively anti-racist journey at Liverpool Women’s Hospital

The Pakistan Association (68a Mulgrave Street, Liverpool, L8 2TF)
14th May
10:30 - 12:00

Here at Liverpool Women’s Hospital, we have made a commitment to work towards becoming one of the most inclusive organisations in the NHS.  Together we want to ensure that our hospital is a place where everyone can thrive in the knowledge that they will be safe from discrimination, inequity, unfairness and prejudice.

Our commitment to being an actively anti-racist organisation

Being actively anti-racist at Liverpool Women’s means opposing racism through positive actions that purposefully identify, discuss, then challenge racism and the impact it has on our organisation, our systems and our people. 

We recognise that racism, including that which might present as unconscious bias, exists in our society, in our city and therefore exists within our organisation. 

We do not shy away from this, and we are committed to learning and improving in partnership with our workforce, our patients, and our communities.

Recent media and public attention

We know that recent media and public attention about events at Liverpool Women’s will have impacted our local communities, particularly those who come from a global majority background. We understand that you may have concerns about accessing our services because of these recent events.

We are listening – please get involved

We recognise the seriousness and the scale of the change we need to make and we are fully committed to do this by listening to our local communities to help us make positive changes.

Our Actively Anti-Racist Programme is a Trust priority. As well as being shaped by the learning from recent events, and the initial work we have been doing since 2022 when this programme of work commenced, we will be focussing much of our time and energy on engagement activities with our local communities. We would like you to be involved in this journey with us.

We would like to invite you to the first of a series of engagement events that we will be planning.

This will be an opportunity to come together and have an open and honest conversation. There will be a range of staff members from the Trust in attendance, with one primary objective – to listen to you.

Members of the Trust will also be on hand to reassure attendees about the current work we are doing, and to offer support and reassurance to anyone who is currently accessing our services, or who may have concerns about accessing our services in the future.
