LGBT Foundation

Research shows that LGBT people experience a number of health inequalities and barriers to healthcare compared to their hetero and cisgender counterparts. In 2018, Stonewall reported that LGBT people experienced increased rates of smoking, substance misuse, alcohol consumption, poorer mental health. People with multiple protected characteristics e.g. LGBT people of colour, disabled LGBT people, older LGBT people have additional challenges and poorer outcomes in relation to healthcare.


Our practice team have engaged in training to better understand the needs of our LGBT patients and encourage patients to get in touch if they have any queries, concerns or general feedback. We are aware that our website can be a useful resource for LGBT people. With this in mind, we have put together a list of local groups, websites and community support that may be useful for our LGBT patients.


All of the groups and information provided is independent from the practice. Therefore, if you have any concerns, we recommend you contact the support group or organisation directly.
