Your spotlight on local services

Equality and Diversity in healthcare – the NHS belongs to all - a practical workshop

Date: 27 Feb 2018 - 13:00 to 16:00
Location: The Meeting Room, Freeman Street Market, Grimsby

  • Do you have a keen interest in local health and care services? 
  •  Do you believe that fairness and inclusion are important factors in the delivery of health and care services?  

North East Lincs CCG and the Hospital Trust is looking for community members to help them ensure all people whatever their background have fair access to health services according to their needs. 

During this workshop you will look at the legal and policy context the NHS operates in, and how Equality Impact Assessments help to ensure the NHS has ‘due regard’ in decision making about policies, procedures and service plans.  You will then put this into practice by considering the effects of current service plan/policy and explore together how to ensure different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act 2010 are not disadvantaged.

 This is a free workshop which will be facilitated by Karl Portz, Equalities Lead at Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust  

Places are limited.  To register your interest please telephone  0300 3000 567 or email nelccg.accord@nhs.net
