LGBT Staff Forum

The Forum is open to any staff member working in a Health & Social Care Trust or regional health organisation as well as full time students who undertake placements  in Trusts.  It is supported by the Public Health Agency on behalf of the wider health service.

 

The Health & Social Care staff forum aims to provide a safe and welcoming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people working within health and social care, create an inclusive environment, and improve wellbeing.   It is open to any staff member working in a Health & Social Care Trust or regional health organisation as well as full time students who undertake placements  in Trusts.  There is a confidential email circulation list with regular ebulletins to inform members of social activities, research, conferences, news items which may be of interest.   There are optional quarterly meetings with speakers and engagement with members around initiatives to raise visibility and challenge workplace homophobia.
