Health Needs Assessment of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Non-binary People in Scotland
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, NHS Lothian and Public Health Scotland are working in partnership to conduct a comprehensive health needs assessment of Scotland’s LGBT+ population. As part of the health needs assessment an online survey is being conducted from 11th June to 20th August 2021.
This survey will ask LGBT+ aged 16 people aged 16 and over about all aspects of their health and wellbeing and the factors that are known to influence health including mental and emotional health, physical activity, eating, smoking, alcohol, relationships, social connections, income, experience of discrimination, and experiences of services.
Over the last 18 months over 180 LGBT+ people and 18 organisations have contributed to interviews and focus groups with their experiences of health and wellbeing and we have used their feedback to develop this survey which we hope LGBT+ all over Scotland will complete.
COVID 19 has changed all our lives and this survey will also help us identify how LGBT+ would like to see the health service change to better meet their needs as COVID 19 recovery progresses.
The survey takes on average between 20-30 minutes to complete. Participants who choose to do so can enter their details (kept separately from their survey responses) to enter a prize draw to win one of four prizes of a voucher for £250 for their preferred online retailer.
The survey will provide helpful statistical information comparing the health of Scotland’s LGBT+ population to that of the general population of Scotland as well as differences within the different parts of the LGBT+ population.
On completion, the full health needs assessment results will be considered at an event to be held later in the early autumn to co-produce recommendations based on the findings with LGBT+ people and LGBT+ organisations.
This will help to ensure that the health service in Scotland is able to meet the health and wellbeing needs of LGBT+ people, not just in how it provides inclusive health services, but also in the way that ill health prevention and promotion of positive health is delivered.
The survey is available at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/ScotlandLGBT2021
