Growing our Great Community through Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

NHSGGC is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Everyone has a part to play in supporting our culture, acknowledging equality, diversity and inclusion by building a Fairer Workplace for all.

Our diverse workforce brings a richness of perspectives.  It is critical that everyone working for NHSGGC is treated fairly and consistently, with dignity and respect, in an environment where diversity is valued – better equipping us to appropriately support our diverse patient community.

Our organisation can only be truly inclusive if every single one of us commits and contributes.

  • To continue to drive this forward at an organisational level, there are five established key stakeholder groups currently actively contributing to the delivery of Equality and Diversity activity – the Workforce Equality Group, One NHS Family and three staff forums – the Staff Disability Forum, the BME Network and the LGBTQ+ Forum. Further information on these stakeholders groups can be found by clicking the links or relevant tiles.
  • To drive this forward individually, every employee is encouraged to embrace our organisational values of Care and Compassion; Dignity & Respect, Openness and Transparency and Quality & Teamwork. By doing this, we continue Growing our Great Community, where everybody feels supported, valued and included.

The Equality Act, 2010 offers protection towards certain groups with ‘Protected Characteristics’. There are nine protected characteristics described in the Equality Act are detailed here.

As part of our ongoing dedication to Building a Better Workplace and Growing our Great Community, we have a range of commitments and activities currently underway as you will see described in the tiles / headlines below.

More recently, we have launched the new Workplace Adjustment Passport to support employees with a disability, health condition or diversity in the workplace to have, and continue to have, a great experience at work. The Passport encourages and enables discussions at work to be well informed and facilitate progress in a collaborative and supportive way.
