Equality, Diversity and Human Rights (EDHR)
Meeting our Public Sector Equality Duty
NHS Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is passionate about Equality and Diversity and this is embedded in our values. We will continue to work with the community and groups across Trafford when we commission services as we aim to meet the health needs of our ever changing community.
To support this, we developed three Equality Objectives for 2013-17:
- Objective 1: Improve equality data collection, analysis, and usage to inform commissioning decisions and improve health inequalities for all protected groups.
- Objective 2: Ensure ongoing effective senior leadership and awareness of equality agenda for Trafford CCG and their membership practices.
- Objective 3: Ensure patient and public communication and engagement is inclusive of people from all protected groups.
Our Annual Equality Data Publication states, by 31 January every year, what equality data we hold; any significant gaps; and how these will be addressed via our agreed Equality Objectives over the next year.
Further support of our CCG meeting the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) can be seen in our Equality Delivery System 2 (EDS2), annual public grading report and dashboard of gradings by local communities of interest (July 2014).
In addition Trafford CCG closely monitor the equality performance of our main provider organisations, assurances of legal compliance are then provided to us by the North West Commissioning Support Unit (NWCSU). See the above Annual Equality Data Publication for information.
