‘A Fairer NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde’ 2013-16
- meeting the requirements of Equality Legislation
Laws are now in place which are designed to protect people from unfair discrimination due to their personal characteristics. Referred to as ‘protected characteristics’, these include age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sex, race, religion and belief, and sexual orientation.
‘A Fairer NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde’ explains how the organisation will uphold the law by addressing inequalities. This means, for example, making sure that services are working well for everyone and that people are getting information in a way they can understand. The document also covers people’s right not to be discriminated against in the workplace.
'A Fairer NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde' is also available in other formats such as large print, Braille, British Sign Language DVD and alternative languages. Please contact us with your request.
