Equality, Diversity & Human Rights



Northampton General Hospital believes that Equality and Diversity (E&D) is central to what we do.  Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.  The Trust recognises the right of all patients, visitors and employees to be treated fairly and consistencly in access to services and employment, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or social status; whether working full or part-time or whether employed under a permanent, temporary or fixed-term contract.

Our aim is to deliver high quality services that are accessible, responsive and appropriate to meet the diverse needs of the different groups and individuals we serve and the staff we employ.

To achieve this aim, we want to ensure that service users and employees are not subject to any form of discrimination or unequal treatment.  Everyone can expect to be treated with equal respect and dignity regardless of their background or circumstances.

It is important to us that we eliminate discrimination in the way we provide our services and the way we recruit, train and support our workforce.
