The NHS Transformation Unit has contributed to a good practice resource produced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in partnership with key healthcare and equality organisations.

This invaluable tool aims to help health and care providers put equality and human rights at the heart of their improvement work to ensure improvements in quality of care for everyone.

It focusses on good practice case studies from a range of health and social care providers and identifies common success factors in using equality and human rights approaches.

Paul Corrigan, CQC non-executive director, said: “Improving the rights of people is a mainstream part of the delivery of health and social care. It is wrong to see a focus on equality as, in some way, a distraction.”

The full good practice resource can be found here.

The NHS Transformation Unit has contributed an example from the Healthier Together programme which can be found on page 40 of the resource and below.
