Tackling inequalities to transform care

Supporting members to improve patient outcomes, harnessing the benefits of a diverse workforce to achieve lasting change.

Our Tackling Inequalities Programme complements national, regional and local strategies on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and health inequalities.

Offering practical guidance, insightful resources and opportunities to connect, we support members to promote diverse recruitment, have confidence in those with lived experience, to develop their workforces and build an inclusive leadership pipeline for the future.

We do this through practical, evidence-based approaches in three areas:

  • Equity – empowering members to lead through community and workforce engagement.
  • Leadership – supporting members to build a diverse leadership.
  • Accountability – a clear and effective system of accountability.

The NHS Confederation also hosts the independent NHS Race and Health Observatory, which offers valuable support to members to identify and tackle ethnic inequalities in health and care.

Join the Tackling Inequalities Leadership Programme

Our programme uses a small-group learning approach to enhance the existing skills of those working strategically to tackle inequality for those using and working within health and care organisations. Supporting the need for collaboration and inclusivity across systems, we work with leaders to develop their skills, equipping them with tools, ideas and insights, and connecting them with a community of their peers. We are now accepting bookings for this year's cohort, beginning in October 2024.
