Equality and diversity: Discrimination

The Trust takes a zero tolerance approach to all forms of discrimination. We actively encourage our staff to report any incidents of discrimination (including third party reporting) and take reports of incidents very seriously. All reported incidents are followed through and investigated thoroughly.

In respect of racial discrimination, the Trust has developed and published guidelines for managers on how to deal with racially motivated incidents in the workplace and has produced a poster campaign to remind staff, patients and visitors that racial harassment of our staff will not be tolerated and may lead to prosecution.
