The Physical Health and Long-Term Conditions Clinical Network in Yorkshire and the Humber region is delighted to announce ‘What do I need to know and why should I care? A clinician’s guide to national Health Initiatives’.

The GIC is the largest and oldest gender clinic in the UK, dating back to 1966. It accepts referrals from all over the UK for adults (from the age of 17 years) with issues relating to gender. In the 50 years since UK NHS gender services began, it’s estimated that more than 130,000 people have changed social gender role.

Occurring on Monday 4 April via Zoom, their team of experts will deliver a high calibre evening of learning for GPs, nurses and healthcare professionals working at all levels.

At the session you will hear information on gender services, prescribing, as well as helpful advice about how best to look after this growing population of patients. There will be an opportunity to have your questions answered, and to share your concerns, ideas and experiences.

Equality, diversity and inclusion in our society is incredibly important. Here in the north and west Cumbria, we want to foster an inclusive culture which regardless of anyone’s background, identity or circumstances, enables:

  • Colleagues in health and care to thrive and reach their full potential
  • Our patients and service users to live happier, healthier lives

For the last few weeks we have been shining a spotlight on inclusivity, and have shared some inspiring stories, fantastic learning opportunities, and useful resources. But the opportunities don't end here - there are still lots of great sessions happening out there, and we have collected just a few for you below.

Get involved! We would love to hear from you if you have an inclusivity story to celebrate and share, or if you would like to tell us about your experiences and contribute to making changes. Please get in touch with us at info@theclic.org.uk

The award comes as part of LGBTQ+ equality charity Stonewall’s Bring Yourself to Work campaign which highlights the importance of inclusive work environments.

CNTW, one of the largest providers of mental health and disability services in the North of England, has received the accolade for its commitment to inclusion of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people in the workplace.

Stonewall is the world’s second-largest LGBTQ+ charity. For twenty years, the charity has been supporting employers to create welcoming workplaces for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people.

According to the charity’s research, more than a third of LGBTQ+ staff (35 per cent) hide who they are at work, while one in five (18 per cent) have been the target of negative comments because they’re LGBTQ+.
