UK Secretly Shuts Down NHS Pride Programme

The NHS Rainbow Badge, a symbol of LGBTQ inclusivity within England’s healthcare system, is being phased out according to VICE News. Funded by the NHS and supported by LGBTQ charities, the program aimed to promote LGBTQ inclusivity by distributing Pride flag pin badges to healthcare workers and assessing inclusion policies. However, due to a pushback from UK government officials, funding has been withdrawn, leaving the scheme’s future uncertain. The Department of Health and Social Care emphasizes the importance of fiscal responsibility in these decisions. As the program winds down, many involved have not been informed about its ending, though announcements are expected soon. This move comes at a poignant time during the UK’s LGBT History Month, highlighting a significant setback in the fight for LGBTQ inclusion in healthcare.
