Our values

The Trustees and staff of Burdett Trust for Nursing are committed to the ethos and principles of equity, diversity and inclusion and we strive to put these into practice in every aspect of our work. We are committed to tackling all forms of injustice and we work to recognise and address the biases and stereotypes that counter opportunity. We know that we have much to learn and we believe we owe it to the patients we serve to champion equality, value diversity and challenge power imbalances wherever we find them. Through this, we believe we can enhance excellence, innovation and creativity and fundamentally strengthen the nursing contribution to healthcare.
