You said we did
Here are some examples of what you have said, and what we did with what we heard.
You said: "We want more information on primary care services; who to see and where to go".
You said: We should be given more information on how to take care of ourselves to avoid unnecessary GP appointments.
You said: "Train local people to become cancer ambassadors, to help spread messages to communities".
You said: "Give more money to the voluntary and community to reach out to communities that are often seldom heard".
You said: "GP practice staff need to be trained to understand the issues and barriers experienced by LGBTQ+ patients when accessing GP practices".
A series of training workshops are being held for both clinical and non-clinical staff to improve knowledge and understanding of LGBTQ+ identities, gain awareness and understanding of the issues affecting LGBT+ patients and how this impacts on their access to health care, understand the link between legislation and practice (Equality Act 2010 & Gender Recognition Act 2004); understand the importance of language.Back to top
