Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity Statement

NHS Brighton and Hove CCG works to make sure that the services it commissions are equal for everyone. We work to make sure that everyone can access our services and get the best of them.

We have a responsibility called the Public Sector Equality Duty, which applies to most public authorities, including CCGs. Under the terms of this duty, we must:

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

This duty applies to the services we provide, and to our role as a commissioner of other services.

Local Information

You can find detailed local demographic data, including information on protected characteristics, on the Brighton and Hove Connected website.

The NHS Equality Delivery System (EDS2)

The Equality Delivery System (EDS) is a tool-kit that helps the CCG monitor the services that we commission and ensures the CCG is able to comply with Public Sector Equality Duty.
