The MKUH Pride Network

Who We Are

The Pride Staff Network is a group of individuals from across the Trust who self-identify as being LGBT+ or are an ally of LGBT+ individuals.

The core aim of our network is to promote equality, diversity, inclusion and Pride in our LGBT+ Staff and to assist MKUH to deliver better services for all, both staff and patients.

We want to improve the working lives of LGBT+ Staff  by empowering them to feel safe and able to be “out” at work allowing all staff to bring their whole selves to work, this will benefit both our colleagues and our patients.

Jacky and Thomas, pictured, are the network chairs.



We welcome all staff both LGBT+ and Allies to join us at any of our events or meetings as we are an inclusive network.
