NNUH joins national programme to improve health services for gay people
Stonewall research shows that gay people have a range of specific health concerns which often go unmet. Health services often overlook these needs and focus on sexual health. NNUH joins 19 other health service organisations working with Stonewall to tackle this in the East of England.
By being a Health Champion were sending out a powerful message to our local community, says NNUHs Assistant Director of Nursing Dawn Collins. Were proud to be part of the programme and look forward to developing our work around sexual orientation with Stonewall.
James Taylor, Stonewall Senior Health Officer said: By being part of the Health Champions programme NNUH will receive free support from Stonewall to achieve real improvements in the care provided to lesbian, gay and bisexual people and their families.
