Equality, Diversity & Human Rights Week 2016
To celebrate Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week (16 – 20 May 2016) the Equality Team at Liverpool Community Health are promoting the three NHS timelines. Each timeline celebrates the achievements of Disabled, LGB&T and BME people in the field of medicine and the NHS.
- The Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Timeline begins with the achievements of Mary Seacole, charts the birth of the NHS and the vital contribution BME people have made to its development
- The Disability History Timeline examines the struggle for equal rights through the ages. It documents how attitudes towards disability have differed through the ages and across cultures
- The LGB&T Timeline commemorates and celebrates the involvement of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in health and healthcare through the ages
