The Equality Act 2010 outlines specific duties on public bodies such as ourselves, to meet the Public Sector Equality Duty more effectively. These specific duties are to:
- Publish information to demonstrate their compliance with the Equality Duty at least annually
- Set equality objectives at least every four years
We have developed our equality objectives to review and improve our performance and outcomes for people with characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010. Our objectives and action plan has been developed through partnering with local stakeholders using the EDS2 process, and are listed below:
Objective 1 – Continuously improve engagement, and ensure that services are commissioned and designed to meet the needs of patients from at least 6 protected groups.
Objective 2 – Ensure processes are in place to provide information in a variety of communication methods to meet the needs of patients, in particular those with a disability, impairment or sensory loss.
Objective 3 – Continuously monitor and review staff satisfaction to ensure they are engaged, supported and have the tools to carry out their roles effectively.
Objective 4 – Ensure that the CCG Governing Body actively leads and promotes Equality and Diversity throughout the organisation.
