Derbyshire County Council run the Derbyshire Dignity Campaign jointly with NHS Derbyshire. The aim is for every social care and health service team, establishment and provider to be giving a consistent experience of dignity and respect for all who receive a service.
Dignity is the foundation for all health, social care and other public services and is the responsibility of everyone involved at all levels.
Successful applications result in the organisation achieving the award for 2 years after which they have to apply again.
We have held the award since September 2016 and are delighted to have once again been successful in our application and hold this now until January 2021.
“The whole ethos of our advocacy services is to put the person at the centre of decision making, respecting their dignity and their choices and is at the heart of the culture in our team.”
