Pride in the NHS Week is a week-long focus at the end of Pride Season 2021 (June – September) to provide rest,
relaxation and recovery for NHS colleagues from our LGBT+ communities. It is by the community for the
community, with core elements grounded in each of the NHS People Plan deliverables.
The theme for 2021 is Elevate, Educate, Celebrate:
Elevate: the voices of the LGBT+ community and support their opportunities
Educate: on what Pride and inclusion means for LGBT+ NHS people and build allyship
Celebrate: Pride, its history and meaning together
To support this, we are encouraging Team WCHC to get involved with the week’s events, reminding them of the important message that an inclusive NHS is everyone’s responsibility. We are also reminding staff of and welcoming them to our LGBTQ+ Staff Network, a space open to all colleagues regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
