Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED)

The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED), which came into force on 6 April 2011, places additional specific duties on public authorities including NHS Trusts. Two such duties are a requirement on public authorities to:

  • Publish sufficient information to demonstrate compliance with the general equality duty by 31 January 2012 and thereafter annually: and
  • Prepare and publish 1 or more equality objectives by 6 April 2012 and no more than four years thereafter.

The published information is to include:

  • Information on the effect that policies and practices have had on employees, service users and others from the protected groups;
  • Evidence of the analysis undertaken to establish whether their policies and practices will (or have) furthered the three equality aims in the general equality duty;
  • Details of information used in that analysis; and
  • Details of engagement with people with an interest in the aims of the duty.
