Equality Impact Assessments
An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is a systematic way of seeing how any policies may affect groups of people differently based on the protected characteristics of diversity. EIAs are similar to risk assessments. In the same way a risk assessment would be taken forward, an EIA allows the assessor to identify potential problems and resolve or minimise them where possible.

Please click on the links below to view the Equality Impact Assessments associated with the commissioning policies. These are arranged alphabetically. 

Please note that some of these were prepared by the previous commissioning organisation, but they are still applicable to the Clinical Commissioning Groups.
