A refreshed Equality Delivery System for the NHS – EDS2
The Equality Delivery System (EDS) was commissioned by the national Equality and Diversity Council in 2010 and launched in July 2011. It is a system that helps NHS organisations improve the services they provide for their local communities and provide better working environments, free of discrimination, for those who work in the NHS, while meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. The EDS was developed by the NHS, for the NHS, taking inspiration from existing work and good practice.
The short animation video below explains what EDS2 is and how it should be implemented by local NHS organisations. This video can be used by NHS organisations to help communicate the key EDS2 messages to their workforce and communities.
