We need to ensure that we provide standardised fair care to patients who access our services regardless of their gender identity and sexual orientation. Are you informed about the relevant issues in these areas to be able to deliver high quality care which reflects the Patient First values of the Trust?

People often worry about ‘asking the wrong questions’ and they are afraid of ‘doing the wrong thing’ – particularly in the areas of gender identity and sexual orientation. Here is your chance to address your learning concern.

To mark Trans Visibility Day Olivia King (Equality Advisor) is launching the gender and sexual diversities workshop series.

BSUH staff who would like the opportunity to work in a safe space to ask questions, discuss and learn about gender and sexual diversity can book on a workshop on the 29th of March 2019, 11am at Euan Keat Educational Centre, PRH. There are 7 spaces available. The workshop will take 30 minutes and will be facilitated by Olivia King (#mypronouns are she/they). You will need to come along with an open mind, and have up-to-date equality statutory and mandatory training. You can book a spot by emailing Olivia.King6@nhs.net. You will receive a certificate of attendance and you can use your learning to cascade learning in your relevant teams.
