What's the Big Idea?

The big idea is that every service across NHSGGC knows how to support the people in our care who are covered by the Equality Act 2010.

This means 3 things – 

- that we understand discrimination and prejudice and what it means for the people experiencing it
- that we know how to address the practical barriers facing our patients around communication and access to services 
- that we comprehend the wider social issues affecting our patients and know how to access advice and support

The Wee Events

The wee events, organised by the Equality & Human Rights Team, focussed on these three key areas and gave staff the opportunity to discuss, experience and question the issues with patients and service providers.
