Diversity Champions
The establishment of diversity champions at  Ipswich Hospital has further enhanced the flow of communication on diversity-related topics, and has helped to develop a culture that truly values equality and diversity.

The role of the diversity champion is to:

  • support Ipswich Hospital and colleagues to make positive improvements;
  • actively influence the way in which the hospital operates, monitors, plans and develops its services and staff to reflect the value of equality and diversity;
  • promote awareness of equality and diversity issues within our services, the Trust as a whole and the wider community;
  • act as a two-way communications channel between the Trust, colleagues, people who use our services and those who care for them;
  • develop knowledge of equality and diversity issues and educate others on the value of these; and 
  • provide information and advice on equality and diversity issues and/or signpost people to alternative sources of information and advice within the Trust.
