Equality, diversity and inclusion

NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is committed to promoting equality and diversity for the people of south east London. As part of that commitment, we are making equality and human rights everyone’s business within the CCG.

Our commissioning processes are underpinned by human rights principles. This means that commissioning decisions will be subject to fairness; respect; equality; dignity; and autonomy. We also have leadership roles for equality and diversity which sit on our Governing Body to ensure that it is championed at the highest levels.

These and other leaders will be focused on both equality and diversity related to the services that we commission, and for our staff – who are our greatest asset.We are establishing an equalities committee which will support this critical agenda, and this will report directly into the Governing Body.
