The research is clear. Treating healthcare staff fairly and with respect improves the health and well-being of staff, improves how
organisations work and enhances patient care and safety. Ensuring that the talent of all who work in the NHS is recognised and
developed is essential. Equality and diversity are enshrined in the NHS Constitution. They are statutory obligations for healthcare employers. They are written into your contracts of employment.

Yet despite this the IHM receives a steady stream of inquiries from members asking for advice on how to…
– look after yourselves as employees and
– look after the colleagues and staff they manage
– influence their employer

This guide starts to answer some of those questions. It signposts the framework employers must work within, the approaches that are more likely to work, and where to find more information.  To read this guide in full please click here.
