Equality and Human Rights Policy and Procedure #2
The policy has been clarified and amended to highlight the main risks to human rights in health and social care. It addresses these by emphasising the need to consider the human rights of people who use services, at all stages of care planning and decision-making. The references to a significant number of KLOEs emphasise the impact human rights have on the delivery of high quality care. The policy title has been amended to highlight the importance of promoting equality for the people who use services.
