Equality and diversity

All Clinical Commissioning Groups are required to prepare and publish equality objectives at least every four years.

Under The Equality Act 2010 all public authorities in the exercise of their functions are required to have due regard to the need to:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Act;
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected1 characteristic, such as disabled people, and people who do not share it;
  • foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it.

The below document outlines the objectives for NHS West Kent CCG and sets out the next steps in relation to those objectives. These objectives will form the basis of our Equality  and Diversity strategy  which will published in January 2014
