Draft Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Scheme

NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly is committed to promoting equality in access to services, health outcomes and in employment for all members of the diverse community it serves. We aim to ensure that this is at the centre of our work, and is integral to all of our functions and policies.

We are currently developing an Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Scheme which will incorporate our statutory requirements in relation to Race, Disability and Gender Equality. This is the subject of full consultation and involvement.

This will replace the three schemes already in existence, and will also consider: religion and belief; sexual orientation; age and human rights.

Click on the following links to access the Equality Scheme or the Easy Read Equality Scheme.

All feedback can be sent via email or download this form and return it to Kate Milton, Equality and Diversity Senior Manager, NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, Peninsula House, Tamar View Industrial Estate, Kingsmill Road, Saltash, PL12 6LE. Responses are required by 31 May 2009.
