Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

A place for everyone

At HCA UK, we’ve always put our patients and their families first. We’re working hard to create a caring and inclusive culture for our own diverse family of colleagues too.

Patients first, colleagues always

In 2022, we asked our people how included they felt at HCA UK. From their answers, we realised there was work to do. Now, with a renewed focus and clear strategy, we’re ensuring HCA UK is a place where every colleague feels included and can thrive. It’s a journey, and one we’ve only just begun. But through partnerships with myGwork, Stonewall , RefuAid and the Armed Forces Covenant, and by investing in training to make recruitment more fair and inclusive, we’re already closer to our goal.

‘Patients first, colleagues always’ is how we sum up our ambitions. Developed by one of our own colleagues, it intrinsically represents the culture we’re building and the spirit we share.

We are HCA UK

At HCA UK, you don’t join a team. You’re part of a family. A family of individuals who each bring something special and different to their role. Watch these members of the HCA UK family share their personal stories and how they’re able to be themselves at work.


At HCA Healthcare UK, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. We put our patients first and affirm the unique worth of each individual. We believe exceptional healthcare is built on a foundation of inclusion, compassion and respect for our patients and for each other.

Our Journey so far

At HCA UK our approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging recognises how and where we can do better. We’re at the start of this journey, and it is one that will never be “done”. We continually reflect, listen to our colleagues and take action to make improvements that matter. Here, some of our team talk about the work we’ve done so far, what it means to them, and how it’s helped them feel included, respected and celebrated.


Our DEIB committees

Inclusion comes from all directions. And, through our DEIB Committees, frontline colleagues are a driving force behind the inclusive culture we’re creating across HCA UK.

From themed meals and events to webinars about Black History Month and what it means to our colleagues, they’re working hard to celebrate diversity, create spaces for important conversations, and shape the sense of belonging we want everyone, at every location, to feel.

#WithPride at HCA UK

As our first employee network, we’re incredibly proud of #WithPride. Open to all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies, this group of colleagues meets regularly to develop new policies and plan activities, which, to date, have included a stall at London Pride and Pride pins for all colleagues and patients to show their year-round solidarity.

Certifications, awards, nominations and partnerships

We know that there’s no one size fits all approach to inclusion. And, we think it’s important to recognise that we don’t always have the answers to everything. That’s why we partner with a number of organisations who support us with their in-depth knowledge and expertise as we continue on our journey.

Global Diversity Practice

In 2021 we partnered with Global Diversity Practice to better understand the needs of our already diverse colleague base. Since then, we’ve made a real strong commitment to our colleagues to create a truly inclusive HCA UK. Importantly, our colleagues are saying they can hear, and feel a difference.


myGwork is a business community for LGBTQ+ professionals, graduates, and inclusive employers. It aims to empower the LGBTQ+ community by providing members a safe space where they can connect with inclusive employers, find jobs, mentors, professional events and news.

Disability Confident

HCA UK is proud to be part of the Disability confident scheme which supports employers to successfully employ and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. We’re committed to ensuring a fair, inclusive and equitable recruitment process which is why we’re happy to offer reasonable adjustments throughout to anyone that needs them.

Armed Forces Covenant

At HCA UK we recognise the value of candidates who have served in the Armed Forces. As proud signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant we welcome applications from both Armed Forces Veterans and Armed Forces Reservists.


In 2023 we began our partnership with RefuAid, an organisation which provides tailored support to people who have fled their homes, helping them build independent and dignified lives in the UK. Through our partnership we aim to offer meaningful employment and shadowing opportunities to help individuals rebuild their career.


Stonewall, the UK’s leading advocacy organisation for the LGBTQ+ community works with employers to create inclusive, accepting cultures. Helping employers to recognise the value of the LGBTQ+ community and providing support is core to their purpose.

National Diversity Awards 2023

In 2023 we were incredibly proud to have been nominated in the category of ‘Diverse company’ at the National Diversity Awards. Hailed as the Golden Globes of the diversity world those honoured on the evening included charities, campaigners, employers and activists, all of whom work tirelessly to combat injustice and
discrimination in very different ways.
