2013 update on the progress made so far against the department's equality objectives.

Detail

The Specific Duties Regulations of the Equality Act require public bodies to set and publish equality objectives every four years. The objectives contribute to the six priorities of the Department of Health’s Business Plan and reflect a commitment to make equality integral to the day to day leadership of the health and social care system.

The first set of objectives were published in April 2012.
