Language matters

 

If English is not your first language and you come to work for us the Trust will work with you so you feel comfortable using English around staff and patients.

 

Zero tolerance

 

Fairness, dignity, equality and respect are all basic human rights so we cannot afford anything less than zero tolerance if ever they are breached.

We expect all staff to challenge any breach of these rights, whether staff-side or service-side. This could be informally or formally through procedures such as grievance, disciplinary, whistle blowing or incident reporting.

 

Anything else?
