Equality and Diversity
The BLMK area is home to almost 1 million people – people of all ages, living different lives, with different beliefs, interests and priorities. We want to make sure that all these people, whoever and wherever they are, can live healthy lives with equal access to the very best healthcare to meet their diverse needs.
We believe that everyone should have equal opportunities in life and that no-one should be placed at a disadvantage over others.
We are working together to make changes
We’re working with our partners to address health inequalities in our area.
We’re also working to make sure that people with mental health difficulties and learning disabilities, looked after children and other vulnerable groups get the appropriate healthcare and support, right when and where they need it.
We are currently working on a joint equality and diversity strategy that will set out our approach to promoting equality and reducing health inequalities across BLMK.
This new strategy will show how we can place equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights at the heart of everything we do.
It will also ensure the best possible outcomes for our community, our staff and those seldom heard groups who we’re aware can often experience health inequalities.
Our Current Strategies
While we’re preparing our new joint strategy, the current strategies for each of the three CCGs are being extended, and are available here.
