New Equality Delivery System (EDS2) guide launches

Writing on paper

01 / 3 / 2016 Midnight

NHS England has launched the new Equality Delivery System (EDS2) for the NHS; a guide to engagement with the local voluntary sector.

The guide looks at how the local voluntary and community sector can help NHS organisations to engage communities through EDS2. The voluntary and community sector is well-placed to help NHS organisations due to its links with specific communities, which health services may find hard to engage with.

NHS England commissioned the work with the Race Equality Foundation, in partnership with the LGBT Foundation, Disability Rights UK, and Men's Health Forum. The guide was developed with service users, voluntary and community organisations, and key stakeholders from foundation trusts, Healthwatch England, NHS Employers, CCG and CQC. 

You can access the guide on the Race Equality Foundation website, or find out more about the Equality Delivery System
