GP Health Partners has implemented the NHS Equality Delivery System (EDS), a tool that will help us to deliver against our statutory requirements in promoting equality and the value of diversity of both our staff and our service users.

At GP Health Partners our policy is designed to ensure and promote equality and inclusion, supporting the ethos and requirements of the Equality Act 2010.

We are committed to:

  • Ensuring that all visitors are treated with dignity and respect.
  • Promoting equality of opportunity between men and women.
  • Not tolerating any discrimination or perceived discrimination against, or harassment of, any visitor for reason of age, sex, gender, marital status, pregnancy, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
  • Providing the same treatment and services to any visitor irrespective of age, sex, marital status, pregnancy, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, medical condition, religion or belief.

This policy applies to the general public, including all patients and their families, visitors and contractors.

If you feel discriminated against:

  • You should bring the matter to the attention of the clinician or a member of the GPHP Management team.
  • If you would prefer to put this in writing, please email [email protected]
  • We will investigate the matter thoroughly and confidentially, establish the facts and decide whether discrimination has taken place and advise you of the outcome of the investigation.
  • If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you should raise a formal complaint in writing.

Discrimination against our staff

GPHP will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment of our staff by any visitor. Any patient or visitor who expresses any form of discrimination against or harassment of any member of our staff will be required to leave the premises immediately and if deemed appropriate, the police may be called.
