Equality & Diversity and Inclusion

​​​​​​​St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion, as an employer of over four thousand staff, two thousand trainee specialty doctors, volunteers and as a provider of health care.

All staff, patients and visitors to the Trust can expect to be treated with dignity and respect and we will not tolerate any form of harassment, discrimination or victimisation. The Trust promotes equality of opportunity and strives to ensure that everyone's needs are met.

The Trust has a set of equality information initiatives that demonstrates our commitment to promoting equality of opportunity and tackling discrimination in access to health services, and in the way our staff are treated .

The action plan has been developed with a range of input from various groups and individuals. The document will change and evolve over the next few years. Monitoring, evaluation and review are seen as essential components and are threaded throughout the programme of work and development.
