Equality Information and Monitoring
specific duties under the act which require us
to publish information to demonstrate how we meet the
general duty. They require us to publish information that
demonstrates that we understand the impact of our decisions on
people with protected characteristics.
We are required to publish this information on an annual basis.
In order to have due regard to the aims of the
general equality duty, we must demonstrate that we understand the
impact of our policies and practices on people with protected
characteristics. Collecting and analysing equality information is
an important way for us to develop this understanding.
The information we collect ensures that we
have enough evidence to inform the decisions we make, enabling us
to deliver the best possible services for our patients and working
environments for staff. We work closely with our Inclusion Hub
Advisory Group (IHAG) and communities of interest, to identify
gaps, plan improvements and monitor progress.
One of our equality objectives, derived from
Equality Delivery System (EDS) grading process in 2012 was to
collate and analyse the latest available equality data and
information to enable us to ensure we are providing equitable
access to care and treatment. To this end SECAmb has agreed a
core data set of information, detailing the required
information/data, as well as those responsible for collecting and
analysing it. The document details what information and data
will be collected, how it will be used and the anticipated
outcomes. This is all captured in the document below.
