Embedding inclusive decision making across Leicestershire

The Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit’s Equality and Inclusion team are supporting a showcase event highlighting the LLR Academy‘s ongoing work embedding inclusive decision making across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR). The event takes place virtually on Thursday 30 September, 10.30am-12.30pm, and is aimed at all NHS staff who work across equality agendas.

This is part of the Inclusive Decision Making Framework (IDMF), an LLR system-wide innovative approach to help embed equality considerations (including health inequalities) within decision making.

The framework is based on six steps to consider equality when making decision. The IDMF will help to:

  • Foster a culture of Inclusive Decision Making across the LLR system
  • Provide a shared Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) resource across different system partners
  • Provide practical steps to ensure that the needs of different communities and staff are considered in decision making and plans
  • Meet the challenges of delivering the NHS Long Term Plan across LLR to meet legal duties – in terms of equality, reducing health inequalities, and human rights.

The showcase event celebrates the progress made in implementing the IMDF across three priority areas: the LLR Reconfiguration Programme (Building Better Hospitals), the approach to reducing health inequalities and the clinical design group work.

We are joined by Dr Bola Owolabi (Director for Health Inequalities, NHS England and Improvement) who is our keynote speaker. We are also showcasing three case studies which demonstrate excellence in inclusive decision making practices across the LLR system.
