Equality and Diversity Statement
The Scottish Government is committed to equality and diversity. This draft plan is intended to support improvements in healthcare for everyone, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status or any other status. Suggested aspects to consider and recommended practice throughout the draft plan should be interpreted as being inclusive of everyone living in Scotland. We have assessed this draft plan for likely impact on the nine equality protected characteristics as stated in the Equality Act 2010, including the Fairer Scotland Duty. A copy of the impact assessment is available upon request.
