24 May 2019

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is pleased to have been chosen as one of NHS Employers’ Diversity and Inclusion Partners for 2019/120.

The decision followed a successful application process by the Trust and is the second year running it has been named as a partner.

It will see SECAmb continue to work closely with NHS Employers and other organisations throughout the year to support system-wide efforts to improve the measurement of diversity, inclusion and equality across the health and social care system.

The work will include a specific focus on areas including the Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) and the Learning Disability Employment Programme (LDEP). NHS Employers will also work with SECAmb to develop more effective regional networks and help it to further improve the overall staff experience for under-represented and disadvantaged groups and communities.

SECAmb Head of Inclusion and Wellbeing Angela Rayner said: “We’re really pleased to join this partnership work for the second year running. I know that our involvement will strengthen our focus on this important area of working within SECAmb and further afield.

“We have always had a strong emphasis on equality and diversity at SECAmb and our continued participation in the programme will ensure we retain additional valuable support to further our understanding and build on our achievements to date.”
