Equality Analysis

Equality analysis (formerly equality impact assessments) allows us to think about people's different needs and how these can be met when we:

  • Act as an employer
  • Develop, evaluate and review policy
  • Design deliver and evaluate services
  • Commission and procure from others

We will follow the Department of Health guidance in preparing analyses. Equality analysis helps us to make sure everyone involved in our services has a positive experience, helping to challenge discrimination, promote equal treatment and make sure services are easy to access for everybody.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
