Equality and Human Rights Policy and Procedure

Clinical Governance Risk Management and Safeguarding Region: | Reference: DCR07

The Human Rights Act 1998, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and the Equalities Act 2010 all prohibit inhumane and degrading treatment and set boundaries on when a person’s rights to liberty or to a private and family life can be breached. This policy will support with this and has been reviewed with minor changes to clarify the need to support service users with a range of expressive differences, for example, those who may self-identify as a gender other than the one they had at birth. References have also been checked to ensure they remain current.
