Equality and Diversity
We are committed to promoting and developing equality and diversity in all our work. We want to be sure that our policies and ways of working are fair to all individuals and groups, regardless of ethnic origin, race, colour, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy and maternity or age.
Our equality and diversity strategy aims to help us:
Protect patients through effective regulation
Regulate the dental team fairly
Be a fair and enabling employer, providing an inclusive and supportive environment for all staff
Establish a robust equality and diversity evidence base to inform strategy, policy and operations
Engage the public and our stakeholders in the design and delivery of our policies and procedures
Integrate equality and diversity with governance and management processes
In April 2014 The Council approved the GDC equality and diversity strategy 2014/15
