October is Black History Month. Throughout the month we will be exploring and discussing these issues to see where we need to make changes to how we work as an NHS organisation, improving both HPFT as a place to work and the services that it provides to ensure a better experience for our service users and carers.
The Trust is proud to be a diverse organisation and to serve our diverse communities and we are proud to promote diversity, belonging and inclusion by celebrating Black heritage and culture.
We want to ensure all staff feel a sense of belonging and that we are able to benefit from the strength of diversity within our workforce to transform health and care services for those who need us.
To create real sustainable change, we need to continue to build an inclusive community that connects with and understands the needs of our patients. Our patients and their families’ lives are enhanced because of the wealth of diversity and experience of our staff.
Although we recognise the depth of the diversity of our staff year-round, during October, we want to spotlight some of the richness of Black culture.
