Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Here at West Kent Primary Care, we are committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion amongst our workforce. We recognise the importance of diversity in healthcare and believe our employees should be a true reflection of the multicultural and diverse communities that we serve.

Recent data obtained from the NHSBSA Diversity and Inclusion report demonstrates that by putting our people at the heart of everything we do, we can achieve and deliver great services to our patients.  As a proud and equal opportunity employer, we continuously strive to create a diverse environment where each employee feels respected and valued.

Under the Equality Act (2010), we wholeheartedly accept our legal obligations which makes it unlawful to discriminate directly or, indirectly, in recruitment, employment or after employment on the grounds of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage & Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins)
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

As an organisation diversity and inclusion is about celebrating our differences and recognising and providing provision for our varying needs. Our aim as an organisation, is to continue to grow and learn together, curate a safe and understanding workplace that values and recognises the happiness of its workforce as an integral component in delivering great services and achieving patient-centered care.
