South Warwickshire CCG Equality and Diversity Documents
In meeting the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) to publish information the CCG has collected the following evidence which should provide an understanding of how the CCG is approaching equality, diversity and inclusion in its activities.
CCG commitment to the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)
Implementation of the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is a requirement for NHS commissioners and NHS provider organisations.
NHS South Warwickshire CCG employs less than 150 members of staff, and therefore is not required to produce detailed staff profiles by protected characteristics. This protects the privacy of employees as any profiles of protected characteristics would allow individuals to be identified.
In fulfilling its legal duties, the CCG has committed to having due regard to the WRES, and will use it as a force for driving change, both as an employer and as a commissioner of services.
All of the CCG’s internal workforce policies have been developed in line with current legislative requirements, including the Equality Act 2010. These policies cover the recruitment, selection and appointment process as well as all aspects of working for the CCG.
The CCGs action plans are currently being developed and will be available shortly.
For providers where the CCG are lead commissioners, a review of both the template submissions and the action plans will be undertaken to gain assurance that the health economy as a whole is committed to taking action.
