The Equality and Diversity Strategy, for Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education, is a continuing commitment to equality and diversity for both trainees and staff.
This is a single equality strategy to ensure that equality and diversity are guiding principles in our pursuit of excellence and builds on its principle of integrating equality and diversity in policy and practice.
Our continuing commitment to equality and diversity has a vital role to play in ensuring our success for both trainees and staff.
We aspire to be a place of first choice and committed to developing a positive culture, where all staff and trainees are able to develop to their full potential.
The Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education is committed to embedding Equality and Diversity across all its work, and believes its strategy reflects its commitment and contribution to its place as a centre of excellence.
We plan to address our duties under the Equality Act 2010 encompassing all of its protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.
We identify improvements and the need for quality assurance in the trainee experience and the challenges faced by disabled staff and trainees.
The Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education welcomes the challenges ahead and we are committed to working on the issues facing the sector.
It is also expected that the E&D Strategy will continue to assist Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education in working collaboratively with our stakeholders; in working in partnership with the Trade Unions; in knowledge transfer, leadership development, monitoring and policy development.
