Health Champions Programme is an annual programme working with a different group of NHS Trusts annually. The Health Champions Programme provides a package to NHS Trusts of over £6000 worth of resources and consultancy to improve workplaces and services for LGB people.
All NHS trusts taking part in Health Champions Programme have to produce an action plan looking to improve LGB equality within services and the workplace.
Conference further believes the Stonewall Health Champions Programme aims to improve NHS workplaces and services for all LGB people in the UK. Twenty NHS trusts were selected to become Health Champions in 2012. UNISON branches should be lobbying their organisation to apply to become a Stonewall Health Champion. UNISON branches should be lobbying their NHS trust to ensure members and workplace issues are appropriately included within trusts’ Stonewall Health Champions action plans when they are part of the scheme.
