NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard

NHS Workforce Disability Equality Duty

NHS England requires all NHS Trusts to explore whether or not they are fully achieving disability equality in the workplace.

In order to do this we collect and collate data on whether or not our staff declare themselves as disabled. The data is collected as part of the NHS Disability Equality Standard and includes the consideration of recruitment and selection, entry into the capability process and staff experiences of harassment, bullying, abuse, discrimination, equal opportunities and reasonable adjustments.

The documents below provide a summary of our data along with our actions for 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 and the actual data submitted to NHS England in 2019 and 2020.
