Working together on racial equality and inclusion

Representatives from primary care; acute care; the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector; social care and local councils have been learning how understanding and improving racial equality is inspiring a more inclusive health and social care system in Devon.

Led by the inclusion team at NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, two workshops held in April included a focus on the challenges and successes in tackling health inequalities through the Covid-19 vaccination programme to help participants understand how to reach diverse communities experiencing health inequalities.

Attendees also worked together to generate and discuss ideas around how health and care partners can continue to create opportunities for collaboration in equality, diversity, and inclusion across the Integrated Care System for Devon.
