Building Health Partnerships
Building Health Partnerships (2013-14) was a national programme designed by NHS England to improve health outcomes through supporting the development of partnerships between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
In Greater Manchester, the project centred on the health inequalities faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) people, exploring the challenges encountered and working in partnership to identify solutions and reduce barriers for LGB&T people accessing healthcare services. The Lesbian & Gay Foundation was the case study organisation.
A Summary Report presents the project findings along with a framework aimed at embedding change in service provision.
Each of the resources linked below showcase the outputs from the programme and provide best practice examples for LGB&T inclusion.
In addition the learning from the programme has been summarised in a best practice guide to support CCGs and VCSE organisations to translate the work in their own area and within their own communities.
