Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust make every effort to make services sensitive and appropriate to the cultures, languages and individual needs of service users and works in partnership within the local health and social care economy to reduce inequalities in health.
We maximise our opportunities to advance equality and to improve the relationships between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not and to foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
The Trust aims to treat people as individuals, respecting and valuing their diversity...
As a provider of healthcare services, we work with our Trust joint consultative and negotiating committee, our commissioners and contractors to ensure that valuing diversity and promoting fair access are core elements of care.
We are committed to becoming a model employer, welcoming, valuing and learning from the diversity of our staff and continue to hold the Two Ticks Award in recognition of our support to employing and supporting staff with disabilities. In addition the Trust continues to be a signatory of the mindful employer network.
We address any act of unfairness or unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation. We always aim to secure the best possible outcomes for all, without detriment to particular groups and within the available resources.
