Workforce Disability Equality Standard

CCGs have two roles in relation to the Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES); as employers and as the commissioners of the services provided by NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts. The Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF) 4 sets out the performance framework for CCGs.

The roles that CCGs are expected to play in rolling out, supporting the WDES and/or implementing the WDES as employing bodies will be agreed as part of the new IAF. Discussions about the 2019/20 IAF and the WDES will take place in 2019.
