NHS Employers in partnership with the NHS Confederations' Health & Care LGBTQ+ Leaders Network are hosting a virtual event to explore the inequalities experienced by LGBTQ+ people, and in particular those experiences of LGBTQ+ healthcare staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During this session we will discuss what actions can be taken to tackle some of these issues and the positive steps being taken by NHS England and NHS Improvement, and other organisations to improve healthcare for LGBTQ+ people. There will be also be an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences during the Q&A.
Please note the webinar will be recorded and published on this website shortly after the event.
