About us

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Southend Hospital provides care to patients, employs staff and welcomes visitors from a wide range of backgrounds. It is important to us that we provide a good experience and we recognise the diversity of our population. We want to make sure that everyone is treated with their individual needs in mind and with respect for their differences.

We train our staff so that they have a better understanding of equality and diversity and we expect them to implement our equality policies to ensure that we provide the best level of service to everyone and treat people with courtesy. 

We also expect our staff to be able to work in an environment where they are treated with dignity and respect by colleagues, patients and visitors.
