Camden and Islington NHS Celebrates #EQW2018!

Category: diversity and inclusion

The words Diversity and Inclusion on red VERCIDA background

NHS Employees Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week 

The Trust joined NHS Employers in their celebration of the seventh Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week #EQW2018, which took place from 14th to 18th May 2018.  Co-ordinated by NHS Employers, #EQW2018 is a national platform for organisations to highlight their work to create a fairer, more inclusive NHS for patients and staff. 

The theme was; diverse, inclusive, together and was  chosen to reflect the move across the health and social care sector towards collaboration and integration - as reflected in the Five Year Forward View and the emergence of Vanguards and Sustainability and Transformation Plans. 

The Network for Change, Disability Staff Network and LGBT+  Staff Network held ‘pop up’ stalls at:

  •  St Pancras  Hospital (canteen)
  •  Highgate Mental Health Centre (canteen)
  •  Network for Change  hosted a presentation on Windrush.

C&I Recovery College hosted ‘taster session’s regarding the following courses:

  • LGBT+  Mental Health - No Stigma, No Barriers:  This course explores the way sexual identity and fluidity impact on mental health. The course is an opportunity to examine; assumptions, stereotyping, stigma and discriminative in mental health service delivery and how services respond to the LGBT community.
  • Understanding Back and Minority Ethnic (BME) Cultures & Mental Health: This course discusses and explores the impact of race and culture on how BME people may experience mental health   difficulties and how people within BME cultures can be supported in their journey to wellbeing and recovery.
