Staff Networks

At UHDB, we believe in empowering all our staff to have a voice, so we can continue to enhance staff experience, enable our staff to thrive, bring their whole selves to work and feel part of #TEAMUHDB.

We want our colleagues to feel valued and provide them a confidential space to share their experiences and get involved in the decisions that will contribute to making this a great place to work and receive care.

Our Staff Networks welcome everybody; whether you identify yourself as belonging to a particular characteristic, would like to learn more about protected characteristics to support colleagues, or whether you want to join one or more of the Staff Networks.
