The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to promoting equality and diversity in our day to day treatment of all staff, patients and visitors regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, mental or physical disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age or social class.
We have a long-standing Equal Opportunities Policy which was put together in accordance with the Government Acts on disability, sex discrimination and age discrimination. Our policy aims to outline our clear commitment to equal opportunities and the action we aim to take as an employer. It is available for our staff to view on our intranet and available for the public on request. Together with our Equality and Diversity statement, our Equal Opportunities Policy outlines the principles and behaviour we would expect from all our managers and staff.
We carry out Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) on proposed policies, service developments or functions to identify an adverse or positive effect it has on differing groups in the Trust and communities.
