Equality Mainstreaming Report

Including Equality Outcomes (2017–2021) and Equal Pay Statement

We are pleased to present our Equality Mainstreaming Report, which sets out how Healthcare Improvement Scotland ensures equality is embedded into our work and provides the information we are required to publish by the specific duties of the Equality Act 2010.

This report contains examples of how we have mainstreamed equality throughout the diverse range of our work, from involving people with lived experience of particular conditions to help inform and influence what we do, to providing NHS boards with a database which can capture equality monitoring information about their volunteers. We report on our progress in delivering the equality outcomes we set for ourselves in 2013 and set out four new equality outcomes to ensure we continue to advance equality, eliminate discrimination and foster good relations through our workforce and all that we do. Finally, we set out our policy on equal pay and report on occupational segregation and gender pay gap information.
