Question

A study by Stonewall and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that the number of gay and bisexual men who have had a negative healthcare experience relating to their sexuality varied widely between London boroughs.  For example, those living in Kingston upon Thames were twice as likely to have had a negative healthcare experience compared with people living in Brent. As the London Health Board aims to reduce health inequalities between boroughs, does it plan to play a role in promoting good practice across London in the provision of services to LGB patients?
