Plans, values and reports

The Trust is required to publish information analysing the effect of its actions on people from different protected groups.

Oxford University Hospitals' equality objectives were agreed in July 2016.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Objectives 2016 - 2020

The following objectives for 2016-2020 were endorsed by the Equality and Diversity Steering Group in May 2016 and approved by the Trust Board in July 2016.

These objectives are directly aligned with the four goals of the Equality Delivery System 2, but tailored though specific priorities to meet the Trust's own needs.

These objectives will be reviewed periodically, at least annually, to ensure progress is being achieved and determine whether additional objectives are required.

The five Trust Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Objectives are as follows.

  1. To ensure that Equality and Diversity improvements align with, and are informed by, the Trust's Quality Priorities (patient experience, patient safety and clinical effectiveness).
  2. To improve patient access and experience for individuals and communities who are currently under-represented (through patient involvement and engagement opportunities).
  3. To improve workforce diversity and ensure equality at all levels.
  4. To reduce bullying, harassment, abuse and victimisation within the Trust workforce.
  5. To ensure that Trust leaders and managers have the right skills to support their staff to work in a fair, diverse and inclusive environment.
They are the result of engagement activities, both internal and external to the Trust and EDS grading activities. These objectives will be reviewed periodically, at least annually, to ensure progress is being achieved and determine whether additional objectives should be added. All feedback regarding these equality objectives is welcome.

Gender Pay Gap Reporting

From April 2017, employers in Great Britain with more than 250 staff are required by law to publish figures relating to their Gender Pay Gap on an annual basis.

The Trust conducts an analysis of these figures and produces a report detailing progress made to reduce the gender pay gap as well as further action to undertake.

Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES)

The Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) is a set of ten specific measures (Metrics) that will enable NHS organisations to compare the experiences of Disabled and non-disabled staff. NHS organisations must use the Metrics and local data to develop a local action plan and advance disability equality

This was introduced as a mandatory requirement from April 2019, however the Trust undertook this exercise utilising the draft metrics in 2018 to enable it to make further progress on disability equality.
