Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
Medway Community Healthcare embraces and accepts its legal, social and moral responsibility in relation to equality and diversity. We are committed to delivering equality of opportunity for all service users, carers, staff and wider communities and to the elimination of all forms of discrimination. Our focus is to provide a service that is fair and accessible for our local populations while recognising the need to challenge and reduce health inequalities.
We strive to reflect the local population in our workforce. We do this by ensuring staff are equipped with the necessary knowledge and information to understand and work with individuals, groups and populations that historically have not accessed appropriate health services, or have sought the services at a later stage of their illness or condition. Medway Community Healthcare is committed to an ongoing programme of consultation and engagement to ensure that our services meet the needs of the local communities.
We have an agreed equality and diversity policy which demonstrates our commitments and an agreed equality and diversity action plan which is updated regularly.
