Severn Postgraduate Medical Education is committed to integrating good practice concerning the equality and diversity agenda within all aspects of its working practice.

It uses the Strategic Health Authority Equality and Diversity Policy as its basis. This can be downloaded from the EQD Links sidebar.

A team has been formed to look into the following main areas:

  • Equality Impact Assessments for Deanery policies
  • Training
  • Collection of EQD data for supervisors, trainees and other relevant stakeholders
  • Analysis of EQD data for new recruits – please find the 2009 report under EQD Links

Our aim is to integrate best practice throughout Severn Postgraduate Medical Education working processes and we aim to support all groups whatever their age, ethnicity, gender, nationality, sexuality, religion or disability.

Equality Impact Assessments are available upon request - please contact Allegra Etheridge.
