Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to establishing a connection between our local people, the services we commission and the people we employ.

The CCG has a responsibility for improving health outcomes for some of the most diverse communities in the country. We are dedicated to eliminating discrimination, valuing diversity and promoting equality of opportunity, to build and sustain an inclusive environment to deliver and receive care.

The equality agenda requires us to take a holistic view of our population as characterised by ethnic group, religion or belief, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality and social background.

Our approach to equality, diversity and human rights is underpinned by our legal equality duties as a public sector employer and service commissioner. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and will ensure that barriers to accessing services and employment are identified and removed.
