“As an organisation, we employ more than 6,000 staff and care for patients from many communities across London, and also nationally and internationally. We are committed to ensuring that equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights are central to the way we deliver healthcare to our patients and members of the public, and also the culture we create for our staff. The Trust’s work on embedding equality, diversity and inclusion for patients and staff has continued to develop in line with national developments.

“Our Governors play a vital role in this area, talking to our communities and members of the public, gathering their views and experiences about the services we provide, and sharing ideas of how we can better meet the needs of those who use them. 

“Governors share this information with the Board of Directors who are responsible for the performance of the Trust. This helps to ensure that our plans and priorities reflect the needs of our members and of the communities we serve. 

“As part our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, we are keen to encourage members from across all communities to consider joining our Council of Governors to ensure that it is fully representative and inclusive.”

—Ajay Mehta (Non-executive Director)
