Diversity champions needed for Bedfordshire

14 May 2015


The invitation comes during Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week (EDHRW) which aims to create a fairer and more diverse NHS for both staff and local communities.

Diversity champions play an important role in helping the CCG to engage and understand the diverse needs of the local population. Feedback from diversity champions can help to address local health inequalities and inform the work of the CCG by getting as wide a range of contributions as possible from people and organisations who are experts in their field.

Paul Curry, Equality and Diversity Manager at BCCG said:

“Bedfordshire is a culturally rich and diverse community and our diversity champions can make sure that the needs and interests of different communities and seldom heard groups are represented. BCCG is always looking for new diversity champions; organisations or individuals that represent or support the different parts of the community we work with.

Once you become a member of the group the CCG will contact you when topics arise that you’ve said are important to you. We would like you to help us by sharing your specialist knowledge and experience with us, in a way that lets you choose your level of involvement.”

If you are interested in becoming a diversity champion, please compete the application form on the CCG website or contact paul.curry@bedfordshireccg.nhs.uk or post to: Paul Curry, Equality and Diversity Manager, Freepost RTHL-GRGS-ZGCH, Suite 1, Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Capability House, Wrest Park, Bedford.
