Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust serves the diverse communities of Leeds, York and North Yorkshire and we are committed to eliminating unlawful discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity.
The Trust is committed to promoting equality and diversity in the way we deliver and commission services, and towards creating a workforce that is broadly representative of the population we serve. As a provider of specialist mental health, learning disability and drug and alcohol services, we are aware of the problems and distress caused by stigma and discrimination, and believe we have a collective duty to tackle this and promote more positive attitudes and behaviour.
Under legislation, the Trust has an obligation to ensure equality of opportunity as well as a patient-centred vision of healthcare. In order to achieve this high level, quality of service, the needs of all people within the communities of Leeds, York and North Yorkshire must be considered and responded to. This is done through consultation with service users and engaging with the local communities and carers.
