NHSScotland parental leave policy: equality impact assessment

National equality impact assessments were undertaken as part of the policy development process to refresh the extant NHSScotland Partnership Information Network (PIN) workforce policies. This report summarises key findings from the equality impact assessments (EQIA) record prepared for the NHSScotland parental leave policy.

Summary of aims and desired outcomes of Policy

The aim of the policy is to:
