At United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, our vision is to provide consistently outstanding and safe patient-centred care for the people of Lincolnshire, through highly skilled, committed and compassionate staff working together.
We believe that equality, diversity and inclusion are central to the success of our vision, just as equality, diversity & inclusion sit at the heart of the NHS constitution. You can read more about our values and aims by visiting the Trust values page
Our Equality Objectives are the building-blocks which turn that core principle of equality, diversity & inclusion into a reality for us all. You can read about our 2022-2025 Equality Objectives and they are also available in Easy-Read.

The Trust is fully committed to meeting its statutory and mandatory responsibilities, including implementation of the Equality Delivery System (EDS) 2022, the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED), the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES), Workforce Disability Standard (WDES) and the Accessible Information Standard (AIS).
The Trust has developed the Equality Objectives 2022-2025 with the above standards and responsibilities in mind. We have worked in partnership with our workforce and patient representatives to establish, check and confirm them.
Our plans and actions help us to ensure compliance with equality legislation, work to eliminate unlawful discrimination experienced by those who share a protected characteristic (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) and to foster understanding and good relationships between all people.
