Equality Delivery System (EDS)

The Equality Delivery System (EDS) has been designed by the Department of Health to support NHS trusts in meeting the requirements of the Equality Act (2010). It supports NHS organisations to understand how equality can drive improvements and strengthen the accountability of services to patients and the public.

In essence, the EDS is an equality benchmarking tool, which assesses trusts against key outcomes in workforce and service delivery.
