NEWS: Leeds practice takes pride in Gold

by in GP Practice Management, News

A practice in Leeds has been praised for its “trailblazing” approach to the care of LGBT+ patients.

The Armley Practice has gained a Gold Award from the Pride in Practice programme for embedding procedures, such as annual training in diversity for staff.

The training has taught staff about the barriers faced by LGBT+ patients in access health care – and about the high “prevalence of inequalities” in health care. The practice also shares information on screening for transgender patients.

Through Pride in Practice, it is also about to provide effective signposting to services and social prescribing for patients.

Giving the award, minister for equalities, Baroness Williams of Trafford, said: “It is vital that LGBT people are able to access appropriate healthcare and are treated with respect. I would like to congratulate Armley Medical Practice on achieving the Gold Award for the Pride in Practice programme, showing a real commitment to ensuring they serve LGBT people in a supportive and respectful manner.”
