Equality analysis

Equality Analysis (EA) is a process aimed at improving the quality of local health and social care services by ensuring that all employees, individuals and teams think carefully about the likely risk and impact of their work on the different groups, communities, staff, service users, families and carers.  
The analysis intends to focus more attention on the quality and how it is used in decision making.

It involves anticipating the consequences of our business plans, project initiation documents, service change, service delivery and provision and policies and other corporate documents making sure that any adverse effects are eliminated or minimised. The process is backed by the Equality Act 2010 and enables the organisation to promote equality of access to services and employment.
