BHP - Executive Summary

Building Health Partnerships (BHP) is a national programme kindly funded by NHS England to improve health outcomes, through supporting 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. We worked in partnership to identify solutions and reduce barriers for LGB&T people accessing healthcare services. 

This paper is an attempt by the Greater Manchester BHP project to encourage commissioners and policy makers to think differently about how they can support VCSE organisations, especially those supporting non-geographically specific, communities of identity.

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, so that the learning could be shared on a wider footprint.
