A collaboration between NHS Boards providing guidance in creating Single Equality Schemes

This guidance is designed to support health boards to develop their own single equality scheme and action plan which will help them to achieve equality for all, both in terms of outcomes and opportunities. It provides information on what should be included in a single equality scheme and action plan. It is designed to be used along with the framework document on creating a single equality scheme and action plan. As equality and human rights law is a developing area, this guidance is a living document which we will review regularly, however health boards remain liable for ensuring the accuracy and currency of their own scheme and action plan. It should be noted that the responsibility for creating a legally compliant scheme or schemes and action plans rests with health boards and the authors and publishers of this guidance accept no liability for health boards using this guidance who do not produce a legally compliant scheme and action plan.

Patient Profiling Pilot in a GP Practice

The purpose of the project was to identify at least one general medical practice that was willing to collect more personal information from their population with regard to equality and diversity. The Pugh Practice in Kilmarnock agreed to participate with the main objectives of the project as follows:

  • To explore whether ethnicity, communication and disability / impairments information collected and stored at primary care level (GP practice) could be transferred to secondary care using the electronic referral method i.e. SCI referral system.
  • If this information could be transferred, to establish whether the acute sector would make use of the information to support the patient journey.

The Patient Profiling Pilot Project Download PDF [550KB] reports describes accomplishments in the practice, findings at secondary care and recommendations for further work.


Good information for a better service?

A Consultation with people with learning disabilities about disclosing personal information

This Report is primarily a resource for NHS Boards. It is intended to support them in their engagement with service users with learning disabilities and, where appropriate, their carers. The Consultation process was developed in Partnership with the Scottish Consortium of Leaning Disability who identified five groups with people with learning disabilities and family carers in different geographical locations across the central belt of Scotland.

Material used was translated into easy read format and was sent out in advance, explaining the purpose of the consultation, and describing the information that was being requested.


Improving ethnic data collection for equality and diversity monitoring

Improving ethnic data collection for equality and diversity monitoring describes the percentage of hospital discharges and outpatient attendances that have patients ethnic group recorded.

Ethnic group is recorded in hospital discharge data in England in over 90% of episodes, but the level in Scotland remains low, the national average is less than 50%.


Patient Focus Public Involvement (PFPI): Providing More Personal Information to the NHS

This report provides a detailed account of PFPI work that the EDIP has carried out in collaboration with statutory, community and voluntary organisations. A 9-month project was undertaken to involve patients and gain their opinions about the collection of diversity data by the NHS.

Patient Survey: Providing more personal information to the NHS


Patient Survey: Providing more personal information to the NHS

A pilot patient survey was conducted on 21st August 2006 by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde at the Western Infirmary Out-Patients Department to find our patients views around providing the NHS with more personal information.

The revised questionnaire has been produced, after the initial pilot, for adaptation at a local level. For this reason it is provided as a Word document, although you will likely wish to distribute locally as a PDF. The document has a few blank pages which are deliberate so that the questionnaire can be printed double sided and still work for patients.

The Ethnic Monitoring Toolkit provides further guidance on diversity monitoring.
