To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference Stonewall's report entitled LGBT in Britain: Health Report, published in November 2018, if he will ask NHS England to run a national campaign to (a) tackle (i) homophobic, (ii) biphobic and (iii) transphobic discrimination in healthcare services and (b) encourage reporting of such discrimination.

The Government has no plans to run such a national campaign at this time. The Department is working closely with NHS England and the Government Equalities Office in the implementation of the LGBT Action Plan, which was published in July 2018. This will include the recruitment of a National Adviser who will work to lead improvements to LGBT healthcare.
