We are committed to greater equality in genomic healthcare for the communities we serve, ensuring that everyone has access to the healthcare they need while treating people with respect, dignity, and fairness, where:
- Diversity is valued and respected – an approach that embraces both visible and non-visible difference
- We all work together effectively in an atmosphere of trust, harmony, and respect
- Discrimination and prejudice are challenged
- Both direct and indirect discrimination (including associative and perceptive discrimination)
We will ensure there is equal access to the nationally commissioned genomic tests as set out in the National Genomics Test Directory, regardless of where the patient lives or how and where they access healthcare.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy reflects our commitment to developing genomic services that meet the needs of our diverse population and continuously improve the way we interact with our stakeholders.
Achieving health equity in the application of genomic medicine requires greater access and availability of genomic information from the diverse population of the North West.
