Equality analysis

An Equality Analysis, also known as an Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) helps us to understand the effects of a proposed policy or service development so that we can ensure we’re not discriminating against particular groups of people.

Completing such assessments is a legal requirement under race, disability and gender legislation. At Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC) to complete an assessment, we use the below Equality Analysis template and checklist. These help to ensure that our commissioners in their plans and decision making have followed the necessary practices and processes to ensure a fair analysis.
