Chairman and Chief Executive's message
As Chairman and Chief Executive of Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, we are committed to promoting equality of opportunity and diversity. Leading by example, we aim to ensure that equality, diversity and human rights are embedded in all areas of our employment, planning and service delivery.
We strive to provide excellence in all we do and recognise the value that diversity brings. We are committed to ensuring that as an employer of choice, all our employees are treated with dignity and respect and given equal opportunity and encouragement to progress and develop within the organisation, according to their potential.
We will also ensure that we provide healthcare services that are accessible, responsive and appropriate for the diverse communities we serve and that we treat patients and visitors by our set of core principles including dignity, respect, fairness and equality.
We will seek to:
- Create a working environment where all employees are able to work effectively and successfully, free from discrimination or harassment, with the opportunity to develop their full potential;
- Work with our employees, our Foundation Trust members and the local community in the development, implementation, review and refinement of our employment practices and healthcare services to promote equality of opportunity, eliminate unlawful discrimination and promote good relations and positive attitudes between or towards people of different groups;
- Ensure that our policies, procedures and services do not discriminate against any individual or group.
