NHS Lothian are looking for your views on their draft Equality Outcomes for 2018-2021 and their British Sign Language Plan for 2018-2021.
As part of their statutory duty under the Equality Act 2010, NHS Lothian must publish equality outcomes every few years and report on progress towards meeting them. The NHS Lothian Equality Outcomes set out their approach to improving equity and justice – for the people of Lothian, and for our own staff.
As part of the process so far EaRN members took part in a workshop with NHS Lothian in June which helped shape the content and themes of the draft document.
The NHS Lothian British Sign Language Action Plan tells you what they will do in response to the commitments the Scottish Government has made in the Scottish National BSL Action Plan (October 2017). It also includes actions they will take in response to things people told us in the local engagement events and process earlier in 2018.
The consultation for both documents is open until Friday 7 September 2018 so get your views in now. To see the draft documents please click on the links above and to submit your feedback click HERE.
