Initial equalities analysis of major acute services August 2018
This equalities study was conducted to help local NHS commissioners understand which groups, particularly protected characteristic groups, are likely to have a greater need for acute services and are therefore more likely to be impacted by any changes in provision. It was conducted by Mott McDonald.
The report focuses on the following acute services:
- Acute medicine
- Emergency general surgery
It is a high-level scoping report. It outlines preliminary observations on which groups are considered to have a disproportionate or differential need for the hospital services under review.
