LGBT people have more stressful cancer treatment than others, DMU research shows

The Mary Seacole Research Group (MSRC) at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) have released a unique report showing LGBT cancer patients have poorer experiences of care than heterosexual patients. The report, entitled ‘Improving the Cancer Journey for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans People’, aims to ensure there is sufficient support, advice and consideration for LGBT cancer patients and to improve their health and well­being during treatment and contribute to their quality of life in survivorship.
