    The challenges caused by Covid-19 have highlighted structural inequalities in health and social care as well as areas where individual decision making may have breached the Equality Act 2010. The CQC’s recent review of ‘do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation’ decisions is a key example. However allegations of discrimination and failures to make reasonable adjustments in the commissioning and provision of health and social care were developing before the pandemic and will be actively pursued after it has come to an end. To ensure you are aware of what you need to do to comply with your obligations, please join us as we provide an overview to the duties imposed by the Equality Act 2010. We will also reflect on some practical examples of complaints of discrimination in the health and social care context, discuss what you can do to avoid them and consider the scope for further developments in this area.
