Equality and Diversity Statement

The Practice aims to be fair and equitable and to recognise diversity in all its contacts with patients and staff.

Patients of the Practice comprise of people from a wide range of backgrounds and circumstances. The Practice is committed to eliminating discrimination on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, religion, sexuality and cultural and linguistic background.

We aim to provide services in a way that respects the needs of each individual and does not exclude anyone.

Equality is about ensuring that access to opportunities are available to all by taking account of people’s differing needs and capabilities. Equality is not about treating everyone the same.

Diversity is about recognising and valuing differences through inclusion, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial origin, religion, belief, sexual orientation, values and opinions etc.

The point of contact for the Practice for any enquiries relating to Equality and Diversity is Guy Patey, Practice Manager.
