The HSJ are publishing a special supplement in September, which will explore attitudes to, and experiences of, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender in the NHS. 


As part of this, the HSJ have opened up a survey to examine whether the NHS is as inclusive, accessible and welcoming to the LGBT community – patients, employees, service users and customers – as it could be. This includes looking at whether and how attitudes are changing, how stigma and prejudice is being addressed and whether the health needs of the LGBT community are being fully understood and met. The survey is now open to people who identify as LGBT and those who do not.

Role models

The supplement will also celebrate LGBT role models within NHS organisations. This includes, clinicians, nurses, managers, leaders and frontline staff who identify as LGBT and who are working to promote the inclusion of, and support for, the community, helping to break down barriers and effecting change through personal example, leadership or day to day excellence. To make a nomination, please fill out the online form within the survey or on the website. 

Closing date

Both the survey and nomination form will close on 1 August.
