Equality, diversity and inclusion

At Guy's and St Thomas' we are proud of our diverse workforce and are committed to ensuring everyone respects and values people’s differences – this includes all protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 as well as other vulnerable groups.

We recognise that our diversity is essential to providing compassionate care to our patients as well as making our trust a really great place to work.

Our equality, diversity and inclusion vision is to continue developing a place of excellence that delivers high-quality, innovative care to our communities and to be a place where people feel valued at work. To achieve this, we need to continuously and consistently work to become an equitable and inclusive organisation for our patients, our staff and our communities.

Our equality, diversity and inclusion vision sets out 5 areas of focus:

  1. eliminate discrimination
  2. foster a compassionate and inclusive culture
  3. ensure inclusive and fair recruitment processes
  4. ensure equitable access to career development and progression
  5. accountable and transparent governance

As a Trust we stand firmly against all forms of prejudice and discrimination and our anti-racism statement and LGBT+ inclusion statement help ensure we hold ourselves to account in these areas.
