The NHS Long Term Plan – The National LGB&T Partnership
Every now and then something really important is happening and we’ll send you an extra newsletter in addition to our monthly bulletin. This is one of those times.
Below you’ll find more information about the NHS Long Term Plan, and some ways to get involved in affecting real change for LGBTQ people within healthcare.
We really hope you can spare some time to attend these events and/or respond to the online feedback form.
Kind regards, The National LGB&T Partnership “Giving a Voice to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans People”
The NHS Long Term Plan
Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health, made a statement on Monday 18 June 2018, on a new long term funding plan for the NHS.
The Secretary announced that the NHS will receive an increase of £20.5 billion a year in real terms by 2023-24—an average of 3.4% per year growth over the next five years.
Since that date, teams within the NHS have been working to engage with communities and the Voluntary Sector to ensure the knowledge and intelligence that we have about our health needs is fed into the decision making process.
Below are a range of ways to get involved with ensuring that LGBTQ voices and needs are heard in the planning process that will set the direction for the future of the NHS.
Regional Events for the Voluntary & Community Sector
NCVO is working with local partners and NHS England to run a series of regional events, looking at the long term plan for the NHS.12th September, 1:30-4pm, Manchester click here to register.
17th September, 10-1pm, Bradford – Email email@example.com with name, organisation, district you work in, dietary and/or access needs.
There are 30 places available for each meeting and they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage attendance from the very small community groups as well as organisations who are delivering front line services. Please let the organisers know about your accessibility and dietary requirements at time of booking.
Online Feedback Form
This is the key way to feed back to the NHS on the Long Term Plan.
The discussion guide on developing the long term plan for the NHS, is now available. This guide is also available in easy read.
The guide is intended to help stimulate ideas on three key themes – life stage, clinical priorities and enablers of improvement, and contains an overview of a number of different areas which NHSE believe have the greatest potential to deliver improvements to the way the NHS provides care.
The discussion guide highlights some of the key challenges and a series of questions that we would encourage you to answer through the online feedback form.
You may choose to provide responses for every topic, or just the ones that are important to you or the group you represent. Where possible, we would encourage organisations to collate responses from their members into a single submission.
Please note that feedback needs to be submitted by Thursday 30th September 2018. If you have any questions, please email Long Term Plan Engagement Team: firstname.lastname@example.org
