Face masks: Due to the sharp rise in Covid-19 infections in our communities and on our wards, we require that all staff, patients and visitors wear face masks in all clinical and public areas, in all health and care settings, unless exempt.
Our equality objectives have been developed to support us with delivering this commitment. People should not be put at a disadvantage because of their age, disability, religion and belief, gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy and maternity or because they are married or in a civil partnership.
We refreshed our Equality Objectives using feedback from engagement and consultation as well as other evidence. This included the strong evidence base within ‘Is Wales Fairer’ (Equality and Human Rights Commission, 2018). Our Equality Objectives are included within our Strategic Equality Plan.
Our Equality Objectives are reflected within our Annual Plan and support the delivery of their aims. We report progress against our Equality Objectives in our Annual Equality Reports.
