Promoting human rights

HEALTH workers have completed a year-long programme to develop and promote equality, diversity and human rights in the NHS.

Northumberland Care Trust was one of 26 organisations to be named Equality and Diversity Partners by the NHS Employers organisation following a rigorous selection process.

Now NHS Employers has recognised the group’s achievements in guiding public policy, supporting minority groups and promoting equality, as well as receiving accolades from organisations such as Stonewall and the Healthcare People Management Association.

Being part of the programme has enabled the trust to share best practice with others across the country.
