Equality and Diversity
The Equality Delivery System (Objectives)
The Equality Delivery System (EDS) outlines to staff and the public how the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust intends to demonstrate its commitment to being an organisation that embraces equality and human rights and its stand against discrimination of any kind. This will embrace actions to eliminate discrimination on the grounds of age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, gender, ethnicity, marriage and civil partnership, disability and pregnancy and maternity.
The EDS explains the statutory duties of the ambulance trust under relevant legislation, and incorporates appendices that explain the structure of reporting and monitoring functions of the trust in relation to equality and diversity and provides details of the local population and workforce, including an action plan/objectives.
