About our Equality Delivery System Priorities

The Trust reviewed and updated its Equality Objectives in 2016 and set new Equality Objectives and Priorities to be achieved by 2020. When we did this the information we gathered was linked to the four goals of EDS2. We gathered information about priorities for service objectives from the Sheffield Equality Engagement Group. More information about how we identified and agreed our priorities is in our report – SHSC Equality Objectives and Priorities 2016 – 2020

The report can be accessed here.
