NHS rainbow badges

Six in 10 hospital trusts in England are introducing NHS rainbow badges for their staff to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients.


The scheme was developed by Evelina London and rolled out across the Trust in February. More than 4,000 Guy’s and St Thomas’ staff are wearing the badge.


Dr Michael Farquhar, NHS rainbow badge initiative lead and sleep consultant at Evelina London, says: “We’ve been amazed at how brilliantly people have embraced the scheme.”
