University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust
Our Aim is to become 'Effortlessly Inclusive'
We want to be the best, and believe that being 'Effortlessly Inclusive' is at the heart of how University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust will be a Great Place to be Cared for; a Great Place to Work.
We are working towards becoming a truly inclusive employer and service provider; in creating an environment and culture that celebrates inclusion & diversity, dignity & respect, which values, nurtures and harnesses difference for the benefit of patients, service users, their families, carers, members of the public and our employees.
We are committed to the elimination of discrimination, in reducing health inequalities, promoting equality of opportunity and dignity & respect for all our patients, service users, their families, carers and our staff to ensure that we are a healthcare provider and employer of choice.
Together with our staff, governors and volunteers we have created a vision and values which clearly states where we are going, and how as a team we will behave towards each other, our patients and partners.
We will constantly provide the highest possible standards of compassionate care and the very best patient and staff experience. We will listen to and involve our patients, staff and partners.
