Building Health Partnerships - Greater Manchester

Publisher: Greater Manchester BHP Project
Published date: 1st May 2014

Building Health Partnerships (BHP) is a national programme designed to improve health outcomes and is funded by NHS England. The programme was set up to support the development of partnerships between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. In Greater Manchester (GM), the project centred on the health inequalities faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) people, exploring the challenges encountered by both patients and clinicians. We worked in partnership to identify solutions and reduce barriers for LGB&T people accessing healthcare services. The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (LGF) was the case study organisation, with the initiative sponsored by South Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group. It was decided very early on in the project to widen the scope of the work, to encompass all of Greater Manchester CCGs. This decision was taken so that the learning could be shared on a wider footprint.
