Equality, diversity and inclusion

At The Christie, we aim to deliver healthcare services that are accessible and inclusive to everyone, in an environment characterised by dignity and mutual respect. 

As part of our commitment to meeting our legal duties, we have developed our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Delivery Plan 2023 to 2024.

We have also produced and published The Christie Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Annual report 2022 to 2023. This report has been produced to provide assurance that The Christie is meeting its statutory, regulatory and contractual requirements.

We also collect and analyse equality information about our patient services and employment activities. This helps us to develop for the benefit of all our patients, visitors, staff and job applicants.

NHS organisations can also assess their performance of improving equality delivery for patients and staff through the NHS Equality Delivery System.

Equality and diversity for patients

At The Christie, we strive to deliver care that meets the needs of all our patients. This is only possible when we understand who our patients are, and the diverse requirements that they have. We’re working hard to understand more about the characteristics of the people we treat and the populations we serve, across Greater Manchester, Cheshire and beyond. We’re continually evolving our internal processes and the way we capture patient data and diversity information so that we can keep improving how we do this. All patients are appropriately encouraged to share diversity information; this helps us to give each and every person the best possible treatment and services during their time with us.

The Trust has developed its first Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Patient Experience Delivery Plan 2023 to 2024 that is linked to Domain 1 outcomes in the Equality Delivery System 2022.

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team together with our Clinical Outcomes Data Unit have produced our most recent Equality Patient Profile Data (April 2022 to March 2023). This report outlines our patient profile by protected characteristic, as referenced in the Equality Act 2010. Providing this information supports our delivery of the Public Sector Equality Duty and the NHS Equality Delivery System 2022 (EDS) requirements.

Equality and diversity for staff

Equality, diversity and inclusion for our staff means placing great value on the rich diversity and creative potential that people with different backgrounds and abilities bring.

Our culture values the contribution of every single person, and is one in which an individual’s success depends on personal merit and performance.

As an organisation, we are required to report on equality, diversity and inclusion workforce-related issues to ensure we treat all individuals fairly. To support our work, we have developed an equality, diversity and inclusion network for all members of staff.

Below is our workforce profile for 2022.

We report our gender pay gap every year. This is published on the national government portal.

NHS organisations are also required to report on 2 NHS workforce equality standards: race equality and disability equality. Please see the links below for each of the latest reports.

We have also signed the Armed Forces Covenant, promising that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.
