Sexual orientation monitoring survey

Lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) patients can face serious health inequalities. Sexual orientation monitoring (the collection of data on patient sexuality with patient consent) helps the NHS understand the health challenges and experiences of LGB people so it can improve their care.

NHS England and Improvement is conducting a survey to understand how the different parts of the NHS are collecting this data. Responses can be on behalf of an individual or organisation and may be anonymised. The deadline is 27 November.
