Commenting on the launch of the new national sexual orientation monitoring Information Standard, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham said:

“Introducing this new national standard for monitoring sexual orientation is a genuine success story for Greater Manchester. LGBT Foundation has demonstrated real leadership by persuading Government to introduce this standard. It will ensure that the NHS can provide the right kind of targeted service which will improve health outcomes for lesbian, gay and bi people, which in turn will reduce demand on the health service as a whole.

“I was proud to support the Greater Manchester LGBT Action Plan, which had this as one of its key recommendations, and I look forward to seeing how it can be extended to other parts of the public sector.”
