EDS2 (Equality Delivery System)

The Equality Delivery System (EDS) was commissioned by the national Equality and Diversity Council in 2010 and launched in July 2011. It is a system that helps NHS organisations improve the services they provide for their local communities and provide better working environments, free of discrimination, for those who work in the NHS, while meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.  The EDS was developed by the NHS, for the NHS, taking inspiration from existing work and good practice.

We will be recruiting for our EDS2 work at the end of March 2019, you can register your interest before our recruitment begins by emailing oldccg.hello@nhs.net
