Improving NHS services for disabled people

Phone us on


The Equalities and Planning Directorate helps deliver real change, eliminate discrimination and promote equality.


Their purpose is to act as a centre of expert advice and support to NHS Scotland on delivering equality and diversity, eliminating discrimination and reducing health inequalities. They will work in partnership with NHS Boards and other stakeholders to enable all communities and individuals to improve their health, and will help health services demonstrate they are doing this.

Established in 2008, the Directorate combines and builds on the work of six previously separate Fair for All projects. They provide support to NHS Boards with their work on delivering gender, age, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, religion, disability and race equality.

The Equalities and Planning Directorate is made up of three teams: the Equalities Support team, the Equalities Development team and the Planning and Performance team.
