Derbyshire Dignity Campaign
Dignity is the foundation for all health, social care and other public services and needs to be the responsibility of everyone involved at all levels.
Dignity is rightly regarded as a key outcome assessed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Are you treating people with dignity and respect?
A key test is if you are treating people with the same dignity and respect as you would want for yourself or your family.
There are limitless ways to meet or even exceed expectations about how people are treated so we want to raise the bar as high as we can.
We have therefore launched a campaign with NHS Derbyshire County to have dignity champions in every service team across the county who will actively work to promote dignity and respect.
Good luck with your work ahead.

Bronze and Silver standard
The Derbyshire Dignity Campaign has been running since 2011 and a considerable number of establishments and organisations have achieved the bronze award.
In late 2013 we launched the silver award. Teams achieving this level are demonstrating an increasing variety of excellent work.
