Have you spotted our NHS rainbow badges?
You may have seen some of our staff wearing NHS rainbow badges. The badges are just one way to show that Evelina London is an open, non-judgemental and inclusive place for people that identify as LGBT+.
LGBT+ stands for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender and the + simply means that we are inclusive of all identities, regardless of how people define themselves.
If you see someone wearing a badge, you can ask them about it. The badge is a reminder that you can talk to our staff about who you are and how you feel. They will do their best to get support for you if you need it.
About the rainbow badges initiative
Growing from a conversation and shared experiences between colleagues, the initiative aims to make a positive difference by promoting a message of inclusion.
Many young LGBT+ people say that they do not have an adult they can turn to or confide in. We believe that people who work in healthcare can play a key role in making things better.
If you want to find out more about the initative, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Evelina London staff can apply to wear a badge online. Search 'rainbow badges' on the intranet (GTi).
