15 / 11 / 2012 4.32pm

The Department of Health has published an independent evaluation of the first phase of implementation of the Equality Delivery System (EDS)

It's been practically designed as a tool to help NHS organisations meet the public sector Equality Duty of the Equality Act 2010, and the evaluation provides valuable insight into how the EDS has been implemented over the past year by different types of NHS organisations.

Key findings

Findings from the report show that the EDS really strengthened equality processes - such as improved local engagement and the better use, and identification, of data.

The report also identified areas for improvement, including simplifying the bureaucratic process and streamlining the EDS toolkit so that it is easier to use and adapt.
