Equality and Diversity

Equality Delivery System (EDS)

The Equality Delivery System (EDS) was formally launched in November 2011. 

The main purpose of the EDS is to help NHS organisations improve how they look after the interests of patients, staff and members of the public who have characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010 . By using the EDS, NHS organisations can also be helped to deliver on the public sector Equality Duty (PSED). For more information on the EDS please click below


NHS Norwich CCG has developed and published its EDS for 2014/15 in partnership with its Community Involvement Panel. The appendix outlines the co-production activities we have carried out to date and those we propose to carry out in the coming 12-15 months around service re-design and commissioning decisions.

Data Sources

The CCG gathers data from a number of sources when looking to commission services, including Norfolk Insight  and also the  pdf State of Norwich (302 KB)  (Norwich City Council report).

These data sets enables the CCG to access detailed data of the health and wellbeing trends of our patient population including disease prevalence and can drill down to ward details.
