A Quality and Equality Impact Assessment (QEIA) is undertaken on all policy recommendations of the Clinical Policy Committee as an integral step in the process of clinical policy formation.
The QEIA combines quality and equality impact assessments into one tool to assess and measure the potential impact of proposed service changes or reviews.
Prior to the development of the current QEIA tool, Equality Impact Assessments (EIA) were undertaken on commissioning policies as a systematic way of seeing how any policies may affect groups of people differently based on the protected characteristics of diversity. These are available on the links below, arranged alphabetically.
