Here at the Society we celebrate our LGBTQ+ employees and intensive care colleagues and work hard to understand, promote and educate others in order to break down barriers and remove common missconceptions around queer people.
Here are the Society we proudly wear our Rainbow Badges, an initiative started by Dr Michael Farquhar, and is now a national NHS England project that helps start a conversation and encourage shared experiences between colleagues. It also helps break down barriers between healthcare professionals and their patients from LGBTQI+ backgrounds and their loved to help them feel more comfortable when in our care. The initiative aims to make a positive difference by promoting a message of inclusion.

In this webinar you will hear from some of the leading names in LGBTQ+ healthcare. We will discuss healthcare issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community, how to be an ally in the workplace, and how critical care as a specialty can work to improve the experiences of LGBTQ+ staff and patients.
