Question

The 'My Health London' website includes no resources aimed at tackling the healthcare needs of lesbian, gay and bisexual people. This is despite research from Stonewall and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine showing that LGB people are more likely to face barriers in accessing relevant health advice, with only 13% of gay and bisexual men in London saying that their healthcare professionals had given them information relevant to their sexual orientation. Will you make representations to address this omission?
