10 GOALS FOR FOR AN INEQUALITIES SENSITIVE HEALTH SERVICE Collaboration between Corporate Inequalities Team and Glasgow Centre for Population Health Focused on three main headings: - engaging with populations and patients - developing the workforce - the Health Service’s role in society
ENGAGING WITH POPULATION AND PATIENTS (1) Knows and understands its diverse population and the nature of inequality and discrimination it experiences Develops and delivers meaningful engagement with those experiencing inequality and discrimination in order to design services and empower patients Recognises that positive behaviours for health will be more likely to be enacted if strategies for support are specifically designed to take the experience of social class, gender, race, disability, age, sexual orientation and faith into account.
ENGAGING WITH POPULATION AND PATIENTS (2) Understands and removes the obstacles to accessing frontline services and health information and prevents harmful, unlawful discrimination Inquires routinely about the experience of inequality and discrimination when patients present for care and mindfully manages treatment in the light of the issues identified.
DEVELOPING THE WORKFORCE Recruits and retains a workforce that represents, at all levels of the organisation, the diversity of the population Creates a working environment which prevents discrimination and prejudice from affecting patient care and develops the competency of staff leading and implementing an inequalities sensitive health service Reallocates available resources and manages performance in favour of the elements of an inequalities sensitive health service
THE HEALTH SERVICE’S ROLE IN SOCIETY Procures its goods and services to impact positively on health and social inequality Advocates for and contributes to economic and social policy which addresses income inequality, gender inequality, racism, disability discrimination and homophobia, as pre-requisites for good health.
