Consultation on Equality Delivery System 2 (EDS2)

Equality and diversity

This consultation is now closed

Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group (LECCG) is committed to delivering the Equality Delivery System 2 (EDS2). The CCG is an NHS organisation that brings together local GPs and health professionals to plan, buy and monitor the quality of health services provided locally. CCGs have a responsibility to secure the best health outcomes for their whole population within their available budget 

Lincolnshire East CCG is responsible for commissioning – or buying – high quality healthcare for our patient population including elective care, emergency care, maternity services, community and mental health services.  We also buy the majority of GP services for our 244,907 patients registered across our GP practices.

The CCG is made up of three localities - Boston Area, East Lindsey, Skegness and Coast, all with very different challenges. These include areas of deprivation, people growing older and living longer.  We have higher numbers of obese people and people living with a variety of long term conditions including diabetes and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). It is our job to understand the health needs of local people and to invest in services that will give you, our patients, better healthcare. 

EDS2 aims to deliver better outcomes for patients and communities and better working environments for staff, which are personal, fair and diverse. It is intended to help organisations achieve compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) and a number of other NHS standards.  It is aligned to NHS England’s commitment to an inclusive NHS that is fair and accessible to all.
