June 2021 marked the launch of the NHS Scotland Pride Badge and Pride Pledge. These are for staff to show their commitment to support LGBT+ equality and supporting service users and colleagues from all backgrounds.
LGBT+ people (and particularly LGBT+ minority ethnic people) still face challenges in relation to accessing healthcare, and negative attitudes towards them.
At NHS Golden Jubilee we want to break down these barriers and promote an NHS Scotland that is inclusive for all.
The new Pride pin lets others know that you are an ally to progress, and the associated pledge outlines the responsibilities of being a badge wearer.
Please first read the toolkit to understand what it means and then to sign your pledge, please follow the link to print the pledge and send back to Rob White via internal mail or you can put it in an envelope and hand in to the Performance and Planning office located on Level 5 East.
For more information and to receive your Pride Badge, please contact Rob White.
