Data Monitoring

The Trust routinely collects equality data on patients and staff members and uses this information to ensure that its services and employment opportunities are fair and accessible to all.

To help organisations access and improve their performance in service design and delivery, under the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector General Equality Duty, organisations must publish sufficient information to demonstrate that, in the exercise of its functions, it has a due regard to:

Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation.

Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not; and to

Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not.

In order to achieve the aims of the general equality duty described above, the Trust must demonstrate that it has a good understanding of the impact that policies, services and practice have on people with different protected characteristics*. An important way for the organisation to achieve this is through the collection and analysis of equality information, including information on engagement with people from protected characteristics where relevant.

Therefore, equality data reports have been created staff, as follows:

Annual Workforce Equality Data Report

The report is available for download below, covering all the protected characteristics.

Protected characteristics are:

Age, disability, ethnicity (race), gender reassignment, sex, religion and belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnerships.
