Join NHSGGC and the LGBTQ+ Staff Forum in Celebrating Pride.

This June the LGBTQ+ community and our allies come together to show support for our LGBTQ+ community, invest in our staff and raise awareness of progress made and the challenges that still exist for many of us.

The NHSGGC LGBTQ+ Staff Forum is a group of staff members made up of those that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer inclusive (LGBTQ+) and our allies. The group aims to create a safe and welcoming space for staff members within our LGBTQ+ community though our social activities, programme of events, formal and informal meetings.

If you would like to join our forum please contact: lgbtforum@ggc.scot.nhs.uk and if you wish to join the forum’s mailing list, please be assured that your personal details will not be disclosed and you can be part of the forum anonymously. Emails sent will always be blind copied.

The Forum has a social media presence on Facebook (www.facebook.com/groups/nhsggclgbtforum) and Twitter (@LgbtStaffForum).

LGBTQ+ Health Needs Assessment presentation

23 June 10.00am until 11.45am Queen Elizabeth Hospital 

Please join us for a presentation of findings from the recent Public Health Needs Assessment for LGBTQ+ people living in Scotland.  The work was commissioned by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, NHS Lothian and Public Health Scotland and the findings will be presented on the day by the research author Traci Leven.  This is one of the most significant pieces of research into the health experiences of LGBTQ+ people in recent years and provides some stark reminders that we still have a long way to go secure equality in health and social care outcomes.
