NHS GG&C has developed a number of staff forums over the past few years. The aim of these forums is for people to raise and discuss areas of good practice and support the organisation on areas where it could improve.
Staff Disability Forum
The Staff disability forum is the longest established forum and can be accessed here.
We are holding a Staff Disability Seminar, entitled 'Our Inclusive Workplace' (in support of World Disabilities Day) on Tuesday 11th December 2018, from 9am to 12 noon at the Teaching and Learning Centre (QEUH). This seminar will focus on discussion with staff and managers to ensure all NHSGGC sites are inclusive for all staff, and as such what facilities/processes are in place to support this. This seminar will also cover details of the Staff Disability Forum, it's history and the activity taking place.
We are planning a series of speakers and panel discussion, to represent a number of services from across NHSGGC. A full programme is being developed and will be shared here in due course, however if you would like to reserve a space or have any questions, please contact Diana Hudson, Staff Governance Co-ordinator.
Black & Minority Ethnic Staff Forum
This group is being formed as a result of discussions held with Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) staff about their experience of working in NHSGGC. Issues raised by staff included stereotyping, discrimination and organisational culture, as well as the impact of negative media reporting and the anti-immigration climate.
In addition to providing a support network for BME staff, the Forum will be supported by members of the Workforce Equalities Group to make positive changes within the organisation.
If you would like any further information about the BME Staff Forum, please contact Nuzhat Mirza at the Equality & Human Rights Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0141 201 4560.
