Day 97: Equity, Equality & Quality

I met today with colleagues from the Local Authority who are helping us improve our approach to measuring and monitoring the impact of what and how we do things.  In particular they’re advising on improving how we assess the impact on patients, public and communities in terms of equality of services.  We are using something called Integrated Impact Assessments, which will allow us to identify where we need to do things differently to ensure that what we do has a positive impact.  We’ll be using this approach to help us in our current procurement of mental health & community services.
