The scope of the Toolkit (also known as HEDAT) includes four tools to assess the quality of ethnicity data and systems for data collection, recording and output within a hospital setting, and provides guidance on quality improvement activities.

The Toolkit helps hospitals assess health care ethnicity data against the HISO 10001:2017 Ethnicity Data Protocols and, more broadly, against current best practice.
