LGB rights charity Stonewall has now opened applications for its Healthy Lives programme, which offers free advice for health professionals on how to properly address the needs of gay and bisexual patients and staff.
James Taylor, Stonewall’s Health Officer, said: “This unique programme was set up in response to Stonewall’s health research and analysis of employer performance which showed that the NHS needed specific help and targeted expertise in reducing inequalities for lesbian, gay and bisexual people. We look forward to receiving applications for this free support programme – we’re particularly keen to receive applications from GP groups and Foundation Trusts.”
The deadline for applications is 6 May. To enrol, visit stonewall.org.uk/healthylives
