Privacy and Dignity: the delivery of same-sex accommodation

Privacy and Dignity: the delivery of same-sex accommodation
This guidance outlines 11 key ideas to support the achievement of good physical separation of the sexes in hospital accommodation. It includes a self-assessment checklist to help trusts identify issues that need to be addressed. The document builds on the recent Department of Health report ‘Privacy and Dignity – a report by the Chief Nursing Officer into mixed sex accommodation in hospitals' (DoH 2007). The guidance will help trusts to understand what is meant by compliance with single-sex accommodation definitions.

It will also provide evidence that can be used to:
  • improve performance at ward, site and trust levels
  • identify areas for celebration, and for improvement
  • inform patients and the public about available services
  • support trust declarations on compliance with Standards for Better Healthcare
  • support trusts to comply with the Equality Act 2006

The document provides general principles for all trusts to work towards and a section specifically highlighting additional issues for mental health trusts to consider.

Excel spreadsheets for completing the checklists electronically are available to download. Click here to download the files.
