Staff networks 

We want NHSBT to be a great place to work for everyone.

Our staff-run networks help achieve this by championing and supporting our diverse team.

But it’s not just about helping our staff. Our networks use the skills and resources of our employees to benefit our patients and donors too.

BAME network

BAME network logoThe BAME network utilises the skills and resources of our black, Asian and minority ethnic colleagues to add value to the organisation.

The network promotes and encourages career progression of BAME employees for greater representation across all levels of the organisation.

It also provides advice and guidance on policy development to promote an inclusive culture across NHSBT.

LGBT+ network

LGBT+ network logoThe LGBT+ network aims to make NHSBT a more inclusive place to work for colleagues who identify as LGBT+.

The network advises on diversity policy and practice relevant to LGBT+ people and helps ensure accountability.

It is working alongside Stonewall and its Workplace Equality Index to progress LGBT+ rights within NHSBT and to help demystify negative perceptions and inaccuracies around LGBT+ blood, organ and stem cell donation.

Disability and health promotion advocate scheme

Disability and health promotion advocate scheme logoThe disability and health promotion advocate scheme outlines our commitment to promoting equality and valuing diversity and will help to ensure that we are fully compliant with the Equality Act 2010.

The main purpose of the scheme is to promote a ‘disability confident’ organisational culture within NHSBT and to heighten awareness of disability equality within the organisation.

Advocates from across NHSBT help promote disability equality issues and general information to colleagues on disability-related matters. We work in partnership with the Business Disability Forum and seek external expertise on disability-related matters.
