How well are we doing?
Every year we test our performance against the national equality delivery system (EDS2)
What is EDS2?
The Equality Delivery System (EDS) was commissioned by the national Equality and Diversity Council in 2010 and launched in July 2011. It is a system that helps NHS organisations improve the services they provide for their local communities and provide better working environments, free of discrimination, for those who work in the NHS, while meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. The EDS was developed by the NHS, for the NHS, taking inspiration from existing work and good practice.
Implementation of the Equality Delivery System – EDS2 is a requirement for both NHS commissioners and NHS providers. Organisations are encouraged to follow the implementation of EDS2 in accordance with the ‘9 Steps for EDS2 Implementation’ as outlined in the 2013 EDS2 guidance document.
