If We’re Not Counted, We Don’t Count
A new good practice guide is available to provide support for services to implement effective sexual orientation and trans status monitoring. If We're Not Counted, We Don't Count contains updated guidance, tips and case studies, and explains how monitoring plays an instrumental role in identifying and addressing inequalities. It also explains how monitoring is not a stand-alone step, it is only useful if the findings are used to better support LGBT patients and to underpin strategies to address LGBT health inequalities. This guide explains how to use the information collected through monitoring to improve services for LGBT people.
