You may have seen NHS staff proudly wearing the rainbow badges and lanyards. The badges and lanyards are just one way to show that we as NHS staff are open, non-judgemental and inclusive place of work for people that identify as LGBT+.
LGBT+ stands for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender and the + simply means that we are inclusive of all identities, regardless of how people define themselves.
The badge is a reminder that to everyone that you can talk to staff about who you are, be open about your identity and how you feel. They will do their best to get support for you if you need it.
A recent Stonewall survey (published November 2018) stated that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) patients face inequalities in their experience of NHS healthcare. The survey estimates that one in five LGBT+ people are not out to any healthcare professional about their sexual orientation when seeking general medical care, and one in seven LGBT+ people have avoided treatment for fear of discrimination.
We believe that people who work in healthcare can play a key role in making things better.
To begin to increase awareness of these issues, and to help improve the experiences of healthcare for LBGT+ patients, help promote and encourage all staff to wear their badge or lanyard!
