Equality and diversity
At QVH, we are committed to ensuring that our services and employment practices are fair, accessible and appropriate for the diverse patient community we serve and the workforce we employ. Our patients, their carers, visitors and our staff deserve the very best we can give them in an environment in which all feel respected, valued and empowered.
Information on our equality schemes, impact assessments and related data are available on request from the equality administrators.
Compliance with the Equality Act 2010
Under section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (the public sector equality duty (PSED)) and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011, QVH is required to publish equality information to demonstrate our compliance with the general equality duty. Our workforce monitoring data forms part of the information that we collate, monitor and publish to help us ensure that equality considerations are embedded within our employment policies and practices, and that they meet our responsibilities under the duty.
If you have any queries about our work to promote equality and diversity, please email the equality administrators via this link.
