Focus on Equality Diversity and Human Rights

Now in it’s second year, last week saw the first day of NHS Equality, Diversity and Human Rights week 2013, which ran from 13-17 May.

Whilst this post may not have been published in time, we feel this subject  deserves a mention not just for a week but for all year, every year.  Now in its second year, the NHS-wide Equality, Diversity and Human Rights week is an opportunity for NHS organisations to raise awareness of equality and diversity.

Getting the most from information and sharing knowledge openly

NHS organisations around the country will highlight their work and raise awareness of equality and diversity locally. Raising awareness of equality and diversity issues and taking action ensures the NHS continues to meet the diverse needs of local populations and is a place where staff from all backgrounds want to work.

This year the theme has been knowledge and data – with an emphasis on collecting high quality information, getting the most from information and sharing knowledge openly.
