DHC is an NHS organisation that provides a wide range of quality healthcare services in Surrey and Sussex. Our vision is to continually improve local services for patients by offering first-class care and shorter waiting times.
We provide Talking Therapies at 30 locations across Surrey and Consultant-led Outpatient Services at Dorking Hospital and Holmhurst Medical Centre, Redhill. DHC Clinical. We aim to put the patient at the centre of their care, make sure our services are easy to access by local people and reduce waiting times for appointments.
We believe our strength comes from the differences in who we are and how we think. Diversity and inclusion starts at the top of our organisation with the DHC Board of Directors which has recently appointed two female members and where 33% of members are BME.
In our Annual Staff Survey 2019, 100% of BME respondents stated they believe DHC acts fairly regarding career progression/promotion, regardless of ethnic background, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or age.
DHC is committed to ensuring that EID is embedded across our organisation for staff, patients, carers and visitors.
To ensure that we continually improve implementing equality and diversity, our policies and processes are under regular review via dedicated EID working groups.
