Wednesday 5 April 2023
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has announced the appointment of Jay Dungeni as its new Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).
This key executive and board level role will provide strategic leadership and oversight of the EDI agenda at the Trust.
Jay will start in this role on 1 April 2023 alongside his responsibilities as Deputy Chief Nurse, a role he has held since May 2021.
Guy’s and St Thomas’ serve a range of diverse local communities, especially in Lambeth and Southwark. This diversity is reflected in the profile of our patients and workforce, and brings many benefits.
Jay has been an active advocate of the EDI agenda to improve the experience of both patients and staff, at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and in the wider NHS.
Jay Dungeni said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to drive forward progress with our equality, diversity and inclusion agenda here at Guy’s and St Thomas’.
“In common with many others, both within the NHS and in other sectors, we know that we have more to do to make our organisation truly inclusive and welcoming to all.
“We must improve the experience of all our staff and, in turn, our patients, ensuring equity of access to health services and the best possible patient care.
“Our absolute commitment must be to reflect and celebrate the incredible diversity of the communities we serve in south east and north west London and beyond.”
