Equality and diversity

Central London CCG is committed to embedding equality and inclusion in everything that we do, but more specifically:

  • How we commission services on behalf of our residents 
  • How we recruit and support the development of our staff
  • How we proactively engage and support all our residents particularly given the diversity of our population and service users

Our work on embedding equality into the commissioning of health services is underpinned by engagement with our stakeholders. We believe that engagement with and drawing on the expertise of residents, patients, service providers and third sector organisations is critical in shaping services that are of high quality, value for money and reflect the needs of our diverse populations.

The involvement and active participation of stakeholders helps us to meet our public equality duties by:

  • Identifying at an early stage in the design and development of services, whether the service is free of unlawful discrimination or impacts adversely on any group of service users at any of stage of development
  • Advancing equality by ensuring that services are accessible to all who need the service
  • Fostering good relations by drawing people from different communities to work together collaboratively with commissioners - and the wider health and social care workforce - to identify solutions to local health challenges

As a public sector body, Central London CCG is required to publish its equality objectives and we have adopted the Equality Delivery System Framework to identify our equality objectives. The EDS is a toolkit which helps us drive up equality performance and embed it into mainstream business.

The borough of Westminster

The annual Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is carried out by the local Public Health Department in partnership working between the local authority, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the NHS, and community representatives. It is founded on a strong evidence base of need.

You can find out more about the local borough and the partnership working planned to promote equality and address health inequalities in the Joint Health and Well-being Strategy 2016-21.

 

Demographic monitoring

We collect the demographics of the local residents with whom we engage via our equality monitoring form. We are then able to ensure that our engagement is representative and that we are addressing any gaps in our engagement.
