The EDS is aimed at improving the equality performance of the NHS and embedding equality into mainstream business.

Our Single Equality Scheme
We are currently developing a three year Single Equality Scheme which reflects changes in our statutory duty, as defined in the Equality Act 2010 as well as our ongoing commitment to the points mentioned above.
Our Single Equality Scheme 2010-2013 will strive to ensure these outcomes are met and monitored, enabling the Trust to continue its aim to deliver world class services and employment practices across Surrey and North East Hampshire, none of which can be achieved without delivering a legacy of positive change for everyone who uses our services and those that we employ.
Our scheme is based on feedback received from people who use services, carers, staff and other stakeholders during the consultation period in 2010.
