Sexual Orientation Monitoring

About this information standard

SCCI has authorised the release of an Advance Notification (AN) for a new fundamental information standard which will monitor the sexual orientation of service users across all data sets, relating to adults and young people over the age of 16 years, in the health and social care system in England. This will aid all health and social care organisations in providing equitable access for lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals and increase the understanding of the impact of inequalities on health outcomes for different populations in England, similar to monitoring of ethnicity and gender.

The AN and a draft copy of the Requirements Specification, below, provide details of this new information standard.

If you have any comments about the draft Specification please contact the Business Lead (details are available in the AN).
