We want all of our staff to come to work and feel like they belong. As a health and care system in Lincolnshire we want to become more inclusive and ensure that discrimination has no place in any of our organisations.

We have big ambitions for how we want to achieve this through four main aims of:

  1. Addressing Bullying and Harassment
  2. Overhauling Recruitment and Progression
  3. Embed Awareness around Just Cultures principles
  4. Strengthening System Networks.

By working together we want to ensure that:

  • We have an Allyship support programme that involves building relationships anchored in trust, accountability and are consistent in interactions with marginalised groups.
  • All staff are educated about different cultures to improve behaviours and the working environment.
  • Improvements are made to our recruitment processes to ensure a non-bias approach.
  • We increase the diversity of our recruitment panels.
  • We use fair interview and decision-making processes.
  • We improve processes and mechanisms for learning around incidents.
  • There is a Just Culture toolkit that acts as a framework for improvements around safety, fairness, consistency, civility and respect.
  • We are continuously developing system-wide staff and volunteers networks.
