Cultural diversity is one of our greatest assets at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust. We are committed to ensuring staff and patients are free from discrimination regardless of their ethnicity, background, gender or sexual orientation.
Every person should be able to fulfil their potential at work, and we support people from all communities who teach us more about differences in beliefs and opinions.
We pride ourselves on using this knowledge to provide personalised care and ensure that we are a supportive environment in which to work and receive care.
