The six Clinical Commissioning Groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent have been working on compiling a joint Equality and Inclusion Strategy for the next three years.
The CCGs sought feedback to shape this strategy from as wide a range of local groups and organisations as possible, both on the strategy itself and also on the four equality objectives which can be found below. This included seeking feedback from seldom heard groups / protected characteristic groups / inclusion health groups and their representatives.
The purpose of setting equality objectives is to help the CCGs to better perform against the 2010 Equality Acts, Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). Equality objectives help focus attention on the priority equality issues in order to deliver improvements in policy making, service delivery and employment, including resource allocation. Examples include targeted engagement or service delivery.
