LGBT Let's Get Better Together Programme

Our new LGBT 'Let's Get Better Together' programme begins in 2018. The aim is to ensure NHS ambulance staff are able to openly identify as LGBT and have access to the same level of support regardless of where they work in the United Kingdom. This three-stage programme will be supported by a dedicated Programme Lead.

Evaluating the Sexual Orientation Monitoring Standard

This information pack gives an overview of the standard introduced by NHS England in October 2017. Although the standard describes a standardised question for collecting sexual orientation demographic information, there are notable issues for its implementation in ambulance services.

The pack describes these issues and suggests how changing the focus to staff monitoring can have a bigger impact on tackling internal discrimination. Examples of good practice are described and resources identified.
