We work hard to make sure that inclusion is part of everything we do. We know that true inclusion means we are able to provide the best care for our patients and provide a fulfilling career for all our colleagues. Our aim is to create a workplace where everyone is enabled to thrive, and to know that their voice is valued and heard.
Our priority is ensure that Somerset NHS Foundation Trust is designed with inclusion at its heart. This means taking bold and innovative action to remove barriers to equality and inclusion.
Leading the way
Our approach will set us apart, and while will not be an easy journey, our leaders are fully committed to making our vision for inclusion a reality.
We have six active and impactful colleague networks. These networks provide a safe space for colleagues to share their experiences and learn from one another, but also influence change across our Trust. All colleagues are welcome to join our networks:
- Multicultural Network
- Women’s Network
- Armed Forces’ Network
- LGBTQ+ Network
- Lived Experience Network, for colleagues living with disabilities
- Autistic Colleague Network
Our key equality reports can be found on our publications page. Some of these were published before the launch of the Somerset NHS Foundation Trust in April 2020, and are therefore the reports of our previous two trusts. For archived reports, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
