The ROH achieves Disability Confident Leader status

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital has achieved 'Disability Confident Leader' status

We're proud to announce that our Trust is now a 'Disability Confident Leader'.

Following lots of hard work and development, we can now call ourselves a 'Disability Confident Leader', a kitemark which we hope gives disabled people confidence that our Trust prioritises inclusion and meets people's needs.
Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better. We are committed to changing behaviour and culture and ensuring we have inclusive recruitment practices.


About the Disability Confident Scheme

Disability Confident is a government scheme designed to encourage employers to recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. It is voluntary and has been developed by employers and disabled people's representatives. The scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, and:
  • draw from the widest possible pool of talent
  • secure high quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working
  • improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that we treat all employees fairly

It also helps customers and other businesses identify those employers who are committed to equality in the workplace. The scheme has 3 levels designed to support employers on their Disability Confident journey, these are:

  • Disability Confident Committed (level 1)
  • Disability Confident Employer (level 2)
  • Disability Confident Leader (level 3)
