NHS Hull CCG is proud to be supporting Pride this year. We are taking this opportunity to talk to the LGBT community about what is important to them, and how health and care services could be better. We are also working with health and care service providers and charities to provide access information and services that support conditions and situations that affect the LGBT community.
This year we are very excited to be working with; Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, City Health Care Partnership, ReNew, Yorkshire Mesmac, Age UK and Hull City Council’s Public Health Team to provide information and support with conditions and situations that affect the LGBT community.
In the Health and Wellbeing zone, staff from the above organisations will be on hand to talk to Pride goers about a range of topics such as mental health, smoking, eating disorders, sexual health and drugs and alcohol.
In the Wellbeing Zone, there will be a place to relax if things get too much, Dry Bar, discussion area, advice and support, appointment booking, and support for carers.

What Matters to You?
Hull CCG wants to know what matters to you, and what is important to you so that we can make sure health services work for everyone. Please click the link below to answer a short questionnaire, it should only take about 10 minutes.
Does it make a difference? Last year we asked you about eating disorders, we used what you told us to commission an improved eating disorder service and we are having a discussion about eating disorders in the wellbeing area at pride. The year before we asked the best way to find out about someone’s sexuality or gender, as a result, we have changed how and when we ask people about their gender identity and sexuality.
