Listening to LGBTQIA+ communities at Exeter Pride

Partners representing Devon’s health and care system were proud to talk with LGBTQIA+ communities at Exeter Pride this month.

Those attending included staff from NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust’s LGBTQIA+ network, Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Devon Partnership NHS Trust, and Devon Sexual Health Services.

Senior leaders and equality, diversity and inclusion staff attended the event to understand the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) people and how the NHS can be more inclusive. People who weren’t able to attend the event can share their thoughts via an online survey, which will be used to shape and improve local services.

On the day, NHS colleagues gave up their time to join the network to wave, cheer and march in the parade.
