“No-one knows what support I need better than me, all people have to do is ask”


The Disabled NHS Directors Network (DNDN) would like to introduce a good practice guide for

improving the recruitment and retention of disabled people.


Whereas this guide has been developed with the NHS in mind, it is designed in a way that other

organisations will find it useful and benefit from the information.


It aims to provide actionable strategies and comprehensive information for organisations, to

create a more inclusive, accessible and supportive workplace for disabled employees.


Covering all aspects from recruitment to retention and developed from lived experience, the

actions outlined will improve the employment experience for disabled people.


This will ultimately enrich organisations with diverse perspectives and talents and improve the

experiences of our disabled staff, patients and communities.

A Message of Thanks

Thank you to you, for reading this toolkit and committing to the journey of disability-inclusivity

within your organisation.


Thank you to NHS England and the WDES Team, who supported the development of this work

and saw the importance of bringing lived experience to the strategic table.


Finally, thank you to the Disabled NHS Directors Network members who have given their time,

passion, personal stories and continued commitment to advocate for disabled people.
