Equality objectives

Greater Huddersfield  and North Kirklees CCGs have both agreed a set of shared equality objectives for 2018 -2022. These objectives have been developed following involvement with the local voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, staff and public sector partners, including the implementation of the EDS2. The objectives have been approved by SMT and endorsed by both Governing Bodies. The objectives set out the three equality priorities that will be worked on over the next four years.

The Equality Objectives for 2018 – 2022 are:

  1. Improve access to GP Practices for specific equality groups, including LGBT and children and young people
  2. Improve engagement with specific equality groups
  3. Improve governance processes for equality

Progress on the equality objectives is monitored quarterly by the Senior Management Team and Quality Committee, and an annual update is provided in the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) report. Detailed action plans are currently being developed and will be published on this page.
