NHS Race and Health Observatory Board Terms of Reference

The NHS Race and Health Observatory works towards reducing ethnic and racial inequalities in healthcare amongst patients, communities and the NHS workforce. It supports, where appropriate, aspirations in these areas as outlined in national healthcare policies, including the NHS Long Term Plan.

The Observatory is a dynamic body that will provide evidence-based, actionable recommendations that can be adopted by policy makers and which will support and comment on the implications of those actions. The Observatory’s foundation will be built on being proactive, a principled commentator on new initiatives as well as being evidence-driven and solution focused.
