This equality and human rights impact analysis covers acute hospitals handbook, mental health handbook, and community health handbook

The purpose of this equality and human rights impact analysis is to ensure that, in developing  regulation of hospitals, CQC meet their duties:

  • Under the Human Rights Act 1998 to respect, protect and fulfil people’s human rights
  • Under the Equality Act 2010 to have due regard, when delivering their functions, to the need to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations between  groups in relation to the ‘protected characteristics’ of age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
