Equality Impact Assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) should be undertaken to assess the impact of any service review, design or delivery. Completion of an assessment will help us identify particular communities who may be disadvantaged by any proposals for change, and allows us to target our engagement activity, support and information to help mitigate against this risk.

It is a key way that we ensure our services are non-discriminatory and completion of this process helps the CCG to demonstrate that it is meeting its obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty – i.e. the CCG, in the exercise of its functions, must have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
