Pride in Practice

In conjunction with the Lesbian and Gay Foundation, we are delighted to be part of the Pride In Practice scheme. 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.
