Health and Wellbeing Survey for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) Communities in Derby City and Derbyshire County
Derbyshire Friend has been commissioned by NHS Derby City and NHS Derbyshire County to carry out a survey of LGBT health and well-being. The aim of the survey is to gather reliable information about the health needs and experiences of LGBT people in Derby City and Derbyshire County to shape future healthcare provision and planning. For too long services have relied on assumptions and national data to try and guess the needs of local LGBT people, so now is your opportunity to say what it is you need and your thoughts and feelings in relation to healthcare services. This is the first time this has been done on this scale locally and is your key opportunity to effect change.
Please forward this message to your networks, groups, friends, family and colleagues as we hope to get as many responses as possible from a diverse range of people.
