Equality Diversity & Inclusion
Equality Diversity and Inclusion
CHCP is committed to developing, supporting and sustaining an inclusive and diverse workforce that is representative of the community it serves. Equally we are committed to the provision of services that respects our increasingly diverse populations and which promotes equality of access and care. Our culture promotes equity and fairness for all in our employment and care and actively discourages any form of discrimination.
Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly and given fair chances whilst recognising they may have different needs to meet.
Diversity describes a commitment to recognising and respecting differences between people while valuing the contribution individuals can make to the organisation.
Inclusion encourages innovation within the workplace, allowing people to contribute to the way things can be done for the better.
The legislative context
The core commitment of CHCP CIC is to provide fair, accessible services for all and equality of opportunity for staff is underpinned by equality legislation. Legislation of central importance to our Equality Strategy is:
- Equality Act 2010
- Public Sector Equality Duty
The Equality Act 2010 replaces previous anti-discrimination laws with a single act making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations.
Patient Information and Literature
All our patient information and literature is available in alternative languages upon request to ensure equality of access to all the services we provide.
CHCP CIC complies with Accessible Information, a requirement of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
