As well as evidence gathered through consultation and engagement activities, we use monitoring information that we hold to help us identify possible impacts and to help shape and inform the Equality Impact Assessment process. We use Equality Impact Assessments to plan our engagement activity, so we can target those people who are likely to be impacted to ensure their voice is heard in our decision making and any impacts or risks can be managed.

Identifying potential impacts requires an understanding of how the city is made up, who uses our health services, and the issues that people face. To build this understanding we use a wide range of evidence including:

Equality monitoring

All our engagement activity is monitored to make sure that we are reaching all our communities. We do this by including an equality monitoring form with all our surveys and at all of our engagement events. This information is regularly reviewed so we can target communities who we are not hearing from. This helps us to provide the best services for all of our communities, and to make sure that we do not knowingly discriminate against any section of our community.
