Equality, diversity and human rights
Haringey CCG’s Equality Diversity and Human Rights Strategy, which was approved by the CCG’s Governing Body meeting on 18 October 2012, sets out the CCG’s approach to promoting equality and diversity and how it will meet its Public Sector Equality Duty.
Haringey CCG is committed to promoting equality, diversity and human rights for service users and our staff and to involving local people in the continuing development and monitoring of this strategy. This will help to ensure that we commission the right healthcare services, provide well-trained staff to deliver and ensure our providers meet the equality duties set out in the Equality Act 2010 and promote people’s rights.
As part of the Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Strategy, the CCG developed a series of proposed draft Equality Objectives to help us to not only meet our statutory duty but also address local health inequalities and the future needs of the diverse community.
The CCG’s Equality Objectives are set out below:
- Introduce robust governance structures and the Equality Delivery System equality assurance framework.
- Build strong relationships with diverse groups and communities to understand their needs, priorities and experiences.
- Develop an inclusive working culture which values diversity and supports staff to feel confident to challenge any harassment, bullying or perceived victimisation.
