The Equality Delivery System

The EDS provides a tool to help organisations be the best they can be for their patients and staff. It can be used to support commissioners to identify local needs and priorities, particularly unmet needs of seldom-heard populations, and allow them to shape services around people’s specific circumstances, and so help to deliver better outcomes.

It will help NHS organisations meet the:

  • requirements of the public sector Equality Duty
  • equality aspects of the NHS Constitution
  • equality aspects of the NHS Outcomes Framework
  • equality aspects of CQC’s Essential Standards
  • equality aspects of the Human Resources Transition Framework
