Clinical Commissioning Groups within the North of England have adopted the Equality Delivery System (EDS) framework produced by the Department of Health as a framework to deliver on their equality duties.
The EDS is a set of 18 outcomes grouped into four objectives:
1. Better health outcomes for all
2. Improved patient access and experience
3. Empowered, engaged and well-supported staff
4. Inclusive leadership at all levels
NHS organisations should rate themselves against the 18 outcomes in partnership with local interests and select four priority actions. 
For more information on the EDS please visit the CCG websites;
