Healthwatch Derbyshire aims to talk to a wide range of people about their experiences of using health and social care services. As a result, we received a number of comments from the LGBT+ community through our general engagement activity.
Due to some themes emerging in the information we received through this activity, we decided to approach the LGBT+ community in a more targeted way to find out a little more about the issues that were starting to emerge. This took place between September – November 2016.
During these months, engagement officers arranged to attend specific groups run by Derbyshire LGBT+ to talk to the LGBT+ community about their recent experiences of using health services.
