Health equity audit guide for screening providers and commissioners
A health equity audit (HEA) is a process that examines how health determinants, access to relevant health services, and related outcomes are distributed across the population. This toolkit provides guidance for public health professionals, screening providers and commissioners. It provides a series of questions to help develop an audit protocol that addresses 3 areas:
- Identifying health inequalities for the eligible cohort of screening services.
- Assessing health inequalities in relation to screening services.
- Identifying actions you can take to help reduce inequalities.
This guidance is designed to be used in conjunction with Public Health England’s generic Health Equity Assessment Tool (HEAT).
