Service specifications and contracts drawn up between commissioners and provider organisations could do much more to detail why and how services should be configured and delivered to meet the needs of ethnically diverse populations and to overcome ethnic inequalities.
EEiC tools and resources to support this area of work:
- Service specification – exercise with scenario
- Service specification – guide
- Common service issues for consideration – prompt sheet
- EEiC mini case study: Self-management services in Coventry were re-specified with input from South Asian people
Further guidance on how to find relevant evidence to inform the design and delivery of services can be found on the accessing knowledge page
