Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Policy Statement

This practice recognises and conforms to the principles of Equality Act 2010 by creating an environment where all our patients and staff are treated with dignity and respect. This policy sets down our approach to equality, discrimination, diversity and human rights as it applies to all our patients and staff.

Responsibilities

The person with responsibility for considering and taking action if any instances breach this policy is initially Annette Twiddy. Anyone found to have committed a serious act of improper or unlawful discrimination; harassment, bullying or intimidation will be disciplined in line with the Oak Mount Dental disciplinary procedure.

Annette is also responsible for arranging staff training in equality and diversity and ensuring that all staff are aware and understand their responsibility to create a fair and un-discriminatory place of work for their colleagues and for our patients to visit.

Relevant legislation

The rights of our patients and our staff with regards to discrimination are protected by anti-discrimination legislation including:

  • The Equality Act 2010
  • Part-time workers (Prevention of less favourable treatment) regulations 2000
  • Employment Rights Act 1996
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • The nine recognised protected characteristics: sex/gender, race, religion or belief, disability, age, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation and gender reassignment

Discrimination is any form of unfavourable treatment. We recognise that any discrimination is harmful and is, in many cases, illegal.

Please contact the Practice Manager Annette Twiddy for a copy of our Equality and Diversity policy and any further information you may require.
