New toolkit launched to promote equality and fairness in the NHS

The Department of Health has launched a new toolkit to help all parts of the NHS to work out how fairly they treat patients and employees in a systematic and robust way. The Equality Delivery System will support the NHS in delivering personal, fair and more diverse health services in the future. It will help the NHS to ensure staff from all backgrounds can thrive, develop and deliver the best care possible, as well as making the NHS more accountable to all the communities it serves, and giving local people a greater say in how the NHS is run.
