Derbyshire Healthcare's Equality Impact Risk Analysis (EIRA) Policy sets out a guidance framework for undertaking a REGARDS EIRA.
This means the policy provides a structured way of looking at and examining the effects or impact of a proposed or existing policy, practice, service or function on equality areas referred to as ‘activity’. The focus is to review the above mentioned in relation to its impact on the nine protected characteristics of people within our community and employment.
This is a tool to demonstrate and fulfil ‘due regard’ to the equality duty in how we develop our work and in our decision making. It also demonstrates living our values in terms of inclusion, putting people at the centre of everything we do, compassion, fairness, respecting and valuing difference so that everyone can be the best they can be.
