DHC (Dorking Healthcare) has grown out of a collaboration of Dorking GP practices to become an NHS provider organisation that serves around 100,000 people across Surrey. Our services cover primary care, community health, outpatient services and mental health.
We provide Talking Therapies at various locations across Surrey and 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.
