We have worked with local people and voluntary and community sector organisations, to identify our priority equality objectives for 2013-2017 to meet our Public Sector Equality Duty.

We are pleased to report good progress in meeting these objectives.

Each January we publish our Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) report.  This report describes progress in meeting our equality objectives, other equality and diversity work and key local health inequalities:

Equality delivery system

In 2012 members of the Bradford and Airedale NHS Equality Group formed Equality Delivery System (EDS) assessment panels to consider and moderate the equality and diversity performance of each NHS trust using the equality delivery system framework.

These evidence sheets show changes made to our grading by the members of our equality group at the assessment panels. Through this process we are identifying any information gaps and our equality delivery system action plans will include details of how we are address these gaps. This summary sheet shows our validated equality delivery system grades.  EDS evidence reports are below:

In 2014 Equality Delivery System panels met again and considered this evidence report from our CCG (to view the embedded documents within this report, please click here).
