The letters 'LGBT' on red VERCIDA background

How are we supporting the LGBT Community?

In November 2017, C&I launched rainbow-coloured NHS lanyards for staff to reinforce the Trust’s values and promote an environment of openness in all the Trust's Services’.

The lanyards are completely optional - Staff can choose to wear the rainbow version instead of the standard NHS blue ones to highlight their support for LGBT colleagues, patients and the public and to get people talking about LGBT topics in a positive and open way.

We also produce a  leaflet  for patients who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and their family/friends/carers. It explains where to get support, help, information and how to complain if you are not your needs have not been met.
It against the law to discriminate against someone (treat them worse) because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. C&I believes that equality must be an integral part of all that it does and is committed to ensuring patients/family/friends/carers are not subject to discrimination, bullying or harassment on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
