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