WORKFORCE: Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust has joined equality charity Stonewall as a diversity champion.

The trust was formed as a result of a merger between Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health Foundation Trust and Suffolk Mental Health Partnership Trust, both members of the Stonewall Equality Index, an audit scheme which rated employers on their diversity policies and practice. Diversity champions get access to advice and support from Stonewall.
Trust chair Maggie Wheeler said: “Equality, diversity and human rights are not just words. We must have a workforce that reflects our society and meets the needs of anyone who needs our help.”
