Our equality and inclusion strategy and reports

Equality & Inclusion Strategy 2014-19

We are committed to promoting equality, inclusion and human rights, tackling discrimination and promoting the rights of the many and diverse communities we serve. In 2010 we produced our first equality and inclusion strategy. The Trust’s new equality and inclusion strategy, covering the next five years, takes forward the work previously progressed and will ensure that we continue to meet our duties under the Equality Act 2010.


We have an EasyRead version of our Equality & Inclusion Strategy 2010-13.


Annual equality reports

The Equality Act 2010 requires all public bodies and NHS Trusts to assess their performance on equality and inclusion across the protected characteristic groups (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation) and show how they are improving the experiences of staff, patients and service users, and other stakeholders.

Each year we publish our annual equality report, which details the progress we have made over the last year on equality and inclusion issues in regard to staff, patients and service users, and other stakeholders, across all the key functions of the Service.

Other documents

In December 2011 we carried out our first staff data refresh across protected characteristic groups. We will continue to carry out the staff data refresh on a regular basis to ensure we have accurate, up-to-date information and enable us to track our progress on recruiting, retaining and developing a workforce reflecting the rich diversity of our capital city.

These regular reports, along with other relevant documents provide the information required by the Equality Act 2010 public sector duty.
