What is the NHS doing to reduce health inequalities?

A new report has been published explaining the actions NHS England is taking to meet the Public Sector Equality Duty, and the key equality-focused initiatives it is undertaking.

NHS England has six equality objectives covering the period 2016-2020 and each objective has a number of targets associated with it, which have been revised for 2018/19 and 2019/20.

The equality objectives and targets can be found at: https://www.england.nhs.uk/about/equality/objectives-16-20/
