Merton Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender (LGBT) Report


Healthwatch Merton organised an engagement event for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community. As a seldom heard part of Merton’s communities; it was felt that a one off event to establish links and hear issues about experiences of using health and social care services would be valuable to Healthwatch Merton.

The aim of the event was to capture some of the experiences of participants with the purpose of sharing the findings with the Merton Council, Merton CCG and any NHS Trusts mentioned in the workshop.

A secondary objective of the event was to engage Merton’s LGBT residents in the work of Healthwatch Merton and broaden our reach across the diversity of the borough. 

After the event, Ian Beever (Healthwatch Merton Associate) completed a report including details of engagement of the LGBT Community, what we discussed at the engagement event and recommendations.
