Equality & Diversity 

Last updated 4 April 2012 

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust aims to deliver healthcare services that are equitable to all users. The services delivered should be appropriate to everyone's needs regardless of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race including nationality and ethnicity, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

The Trust aims to ensure:

  • an environment in which employees, patients and visitors are treated with consideration, dignity and respect, free from harassment and intimidation.
  • employees and job applicants do not receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of any of the above reasons
  • that patients and visitors do not suffer detriment, disadvantage or unequal treatment for any of the above reasons


Equality is about ensuring all people are treated fairly and equally and that any decisions made are based on objective relevant criteria.


Diversity is about recognising and valuing the different contributions that all staff, patients, carers and families can bring to the organisation.
