What is the Equality Delivery System 2? Making sure that we commission services as fairly as possible, to ensure that the health and access needs of all communities are met Performance Management Tool to assess Equality, Diversity and Human Rights across NHS organisations A way of reviewing services and working practices Supports keeping Equality and Diversity high on the agenda 4 overarching Goals 18 Outcomes
4 Goals The are 4 goals: Goal 1 – Better health outcomes Goal 2 – Improved patient access and experience Goal 3 – A representative and supported workforce Goal 4 – Inclusive leadership
18 Outcomes Each outcome supports one of the 4 goals Each goal is spilt into a number of “outcomes” e.g. Goal 4 is spilt into two outcomes Each “outcome” is graded, based on evidence and case studies An overall grade is given for each goal
Our journey so far… Established a group of managers to support this process (Task and Finish Group) Gathered evidence and case studies across the 4 goals and 18 outcomes An internal self-assessment is taking place – to demonstrate the grades that we think we are at
Equality Delivery System – Case Study Template EDS 2 GOAL (S): OUTCOME Number(s): Case Study Title: Service: Case study overview Please provide a short summary of the work being described in the case study. Please identify what protected characteristics this case study relates to? The Key Issue(s) What are the main issues that lead the project/pilot/work to take place? How we responded What action took place in response to the issue(s)? Who was involved? How was it resourced? What engagement took place? Who did you engage with, identify which protected groups? How and where did engagement take place? How did this help your project/pilot/work? – What feedback was gained from the engagement? What difference has it made? What was the impact made because of this work? How has it made a positive difference to local patient’s lives? What would have happened if the work hadn’t taken place? Additional Information Please add any additional information that you think would be relevant and useful to include in the context of supporting your case study. ContactPlease insert main contacts – name, job title, email, contact telephone number, service area and location
Internal self-assessment A group of Managers will meet and decide on the grading for each Outcome and Goal. These grading's will be open for discussion at the external grading session on 4 th November 2014.
How you can support and work with us Using your experience and knowledge, tell us how we’re doing in relation to protected groups Grade us from red/amber/green/purple The grade you give us will be made public It’s your grade that counts Tell us what we still need to do
Your involvement and what is expected Read evidence and case studies on our progress Evidence will be presented in various formats Grade each outcome If you disagree with our grading, we want your views as to why
Your grading and what we would like you to consider Have we shown that we have thought about all the protected characteristics in Goals 1 and 2? In Goal 3 have we shown that our staff feel empowered, engaged and well supported across the protected characteristics? In Goal 4 have we shown how our leaders know their responsibilities and have taken Equality and diversity into account when making decisions? If not, have we shown that we have plans to improve?
What does each grade mean? Excelling – Purple Achieving – Green Developing – Amber Undeveloped – Red
How do you decide which grade to give us We need you to consider the following question: How well do people from protected groups fare compared with people overall? Your grade will depend on the outcome of the above: Underdeveloped – majority of evidence for 2 or less protected groups fare well Developing – majority of people in 3 to 5 protected groups fare well Achieving – majority of people in 6 – 8 protected groups fare well Excelling – majority in all 9 protected groups fare well
And finally… This is your opportunity to share with us any questions and queries. Are you still interested in taking part in the external stakeholder assessment on the 4 th November? Refreshments and lunch will be available on the 4 th, so please inform us of any specific dietary needs.
