Share 'Beyond Babies & Breast Cancer' report launch

Event Details

You are invited to a launch and action planning event for 'Beyond Babies & Breast Cancer - expanding our understanding of women's health needs'. This comprehensive report brings together wide-ranging evidence on the health needs and experiences of lesbian and bisexual women. 

Did you know?:

  • Lesbian and bisexual women are much more likely than either gay and bisexual men or heterosexual women to report negative experiences when accessing healthcare.
  • Several large-scale studies have found that lesbian and bisexual women have an increased likelihood of long-standing health conditions.
  • Rates of drinking, drug-taking and smoking are markedly higher amongst lesbian and bisexual women.
  • Lesbian and bisexual women are more likely than heterosexual women to suffer mental ill-health, with prevalence particularly high amongst bisexual women.
We are marking the launch of this new report with a free half-day learning and action planning event on Friday 24th January 10.00am - 1.30pm at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation in Manchester. The event will outline the key health needs of this cohort and will feature practical examples of how this information can be used to drive service improvement. It will also allow you to share your expertise through an action planning session on how the report can be used to improve patient experience and outcomes. The event will conclude with a networking lunch.

This event is for health commissioners, policy-makers, researchers and clinicians. Please feel free to invite colleagues who you think may be interested.
