Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our strategy, Leading for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, outlines our ambitions to become a truly inclusive employer and service provider for our staff, patients and local health community. It builds upon our positive culture and improvement journey over the last five years and supports our mission to provide the excellent care we would expect for our own families.

As a large NHS employer, The Royal Bournemouth Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) recognises we have a corporate responsibility to engage our whole community. Valuing diversity ensures an inclusive environment for potential staff and service users. We also know that celebrating individual difference and bringing diverse teams together with disparate styles and talent will foster innovation and continuous improvement for patients, service users, their families, carers and our staff.
