Since the programme was initiated in July, there has been an overwhelming response from staff with over 100 equality advocates joining up.

An equality advocate is a voluntary role. It is a member of staff who is committed to the principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and is willing to play a key part in promoting the agenda in their own workplace.

Chairman Steve Mycio offered his support and commitment in his closing speech: "Equality is about fairness. If wec group shot treat our staff fairly and ensure that everyone achieves their potential, we also ensure that we deliver excellent service to our patients and service users. Equality leads us to Quality."

Other Senior Executive Team members, including Margot Johnson, Bob Pearson, Cheryl Lenney and David Cain also attended the event  to acknowledge the commitment and dedication of staff.
