Equality and Diversity - Age
Patient and Nurse


The government has introduced legislation to prevent discrimination against employees on the grounds of their age.


Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust uses a single equality impact assessment, which includes age, to check that our functions, services, policies or procedures are not significantly disadvantaging people because of their age.  The Trust is committed to promoting equality and diversity and tackling age related discrimination in the workplace.

All new policy and procedural documents drafted in the Trust are in line with the NHS Litigation Authority guidelines and template, and include an equality impact assessment.

Legal Framework- a number of pieces of legislation that provide protection from discrimination, victimisation and harassment for employment and the delivery of goods, services and facilities.
