We recognise that many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are often reluctant to ask for medical help because of negative experiences they may have had in the past.
All staff at the practice have a good understanding of the issues facing our LGBT patients and positively support them in accessing the care they need.
As a reflection of our commitment to LGBT patients, we are proud to be involved in the Pride in Practice scheme run by The LGBT Foundation.
This scheme identifies GP surgeries that are fully committed to ensuring that their lesbian, gay and bisexual patients are treated fairly and are able to discuss their issues openly with their GP or healthcare provider. We have received the gold award.
