Our Equality Health Panel was set up in 2017. It provides an opportunity for protected groups and their representatives to share views, information and feedback with the CCG and local provider organisations, and to promote equality in the Kirklees healthcare system.
The panel ensures that the voices of people with characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010 and other disadvantaged groups are represented in discussions about the planning, delivery and improvement of local healthcare services.
The panel meets quarterly. Examples of its work include supporting the CCG and provider organisations to complete the Equality Delivery System grading process, and assisting the CCG to develop its equality objectives.
