Women and Equalities Committee
Existing evidence shows that health outcomes are generally worse for LGBT people than for the rest of the population. The Government’s recent survey of 108,000 LGBT people found that many had difficulties accessing healthcare services, some had experienced inappropriate questioning and curiosity from healthcare staff, and that many feel their specific needs are not taken into account in their care. This inquiry will consider whether provision is adequate, whether discrimination is still occurring, and what more needs to be done to improve access to health and social care.
Evidence given by Rt Hon Matthew Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Baroness Williams of Trafford, Minister for Equalities
