Although the NHS has policies, guidelines on Equality Diversity and Inclusion they are not adopted / implemented in a consistent way across Trusts and rarely known by but a few interested individuals.

Recent initiatives like the NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) and work by NHS Employers Diversity and Inclusion team continue to highlight barriers to disclosure of a disability with rates are very low and not a true representation of the number of nurses who have a disability.

Adopting Universal Design is a holistic approach that aims to best support everyone within an organisation by proactively reducing barriers. Universal Design reframes a bolt-on, problem-focused approach to disability and seeks to find the best solutions for everyone that supports a positive worker experience, recognises an individual’s skillsets, increases retention, and reduces attrition.
