The Equality Delivery System is a national toolkit that supports us to provide better working practices and environments, free of discrimination.
It helps us understand how well we are responding to the equality issues that matter most to patients and staff. It also tracks our performance against national benchmarks.
The Equality Delivery System (EDS) helps local NHS organisations, in discussion with local partners including local people, review and improve their performance for people with characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010. By using the EDS, NHS organisations can also be helped to deliver on the public sector Equality Duty (PSED).
