Equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives of healthcare partners


Our engagement with healthcare partners on our lived experience research identified a number of activities relevant to our equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) work that complement the objective of a better and fairer experience for ethnic minority and international medical graduate (IMG) practitioners who are the subject of performance concerns.

Information about some of these initiatives is set out below. Please contact the individual organisations concerned for more information about any of these activities.

The health service workforce has long been amongst the most diverse in the country and we all benefit from the contributions of healthcare professionals from a wide range of backgrounds. A wide range of evidence however suggests that there is a very long way to go to make our working environments amongst the most inclusive. All of us within healthcare have a responsibility to address this and Medical Protection Society are therefore very pleased to support the Lived Experience project and NHS Resolution’s work in this area.

We know a good induction for IMGs is an essential first step in preventing problems and encouraging fair and early resolutions to concerns. That’s why I am working closely with the GMC and employers to embed the Welcoming and Valuing IMG standards for overseas graduates to drive positive change.
