Sexual Orientation Monitoring Information Standard _Latest News

Health Education England, the LGBT Foundation and Stonewall have worked in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare to develop an e-learning programme to provide health and social care staff with an introduction to the Sexual Orientation Monitoring Information Standard.

The e-learning programme sets out why the Standard was introduced in adult health and social care services, explains some of the health inequalities experienced by lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) communities and explores the benefits of monitoring.

The first principle of the NHS Constitution is the commitment to a comprehensive health and social care service, available to all irrespective of personal background. By recognising that every patient has different needs and circumstances, people working in health and social care services can deliver a personal form of care, which recognises diversity, improves outcomes, and addresses health inequalities. Wider patterns or inequalities can also be identified.

The Sexual Orientation Monitoring Information Standard will enable health and social care organisations to monitor in a way that is consistent across the adult health and social care system.

The e-learning programme is available to access via the e-LfH Hub and ESR.
