Have your say on discrimination in the health service for LGBT+ people

7 pm, Wednesday 26 September 2018
Parkside Fire Station, Cambridge 

Health and social care services are generally worse for LGBT+ people than for the rest of the population. The government has asked the Women and Equalities Committee to find out whether discrimination is still happening and what needs to be done to improve access to health and social care.

To do this the Women and Equalities Committee want to find out more about the health and social care experiences of LGBT+ people. They want to understand more about the discrimination people experience and how services can better meet their needs.

Encompass Network and our Healthwatch are keen to get the opinions of local LGBT+ people heard.  What are your experiences of discrimination within health and social care services?  What do you think are the causes of this discrimination?  What can be done better?

Also, the government has committed to appointing a new national advisor for improving LGBT+ healthcare. What do you think their priorities should be? How do should they achieve them?

If you have opinions about any of these issues, we would really like to hear from you. Join our focus group on Tuesday 26 September and have your say.

Places are limited so you must book in advance. To book please contact us:

If you can not get to the meeting, but still want to share your experience you can tak this short online survey:
