Our vision

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in healthcare for the staff, service users, families and carers, ensuring that everyone has access to the services they need, while treating people with respect, dignity and fairness.

The key to KMPT’s success is strong leadership evidenced by a well-led environment in which our staff are valued for their diversity and contribution through their experience, knowledge and skills. Every person working for KMPT has a responsibility for implementing and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.

The implementation of the strategy and achieving its aims will ensure staff are empowered and feel supported in their role and development. Their knowledge of equality, diversity and inclusion will result in more person centred care for our patients.

We seek to create an inclusive environment that is supportive to everyone and delivers a brilliant care culture in Kent.
