Out North West Article
"We completed the Pride in practice workshops several months ago. As a result I feel that my personal practice has changed as has our physical practice environment, to help breakdown some of the perceived barriers faced by the LGB community, when encountering a primary health care setting. Through a simple step, such as having a 'LGF Pride in practice Poster' in my consulting room, patients have been able to refer to it and discuss their own sexuality, when previously they may not have felt as comfortable doing so. This as a result, has helped the clinical and diagnostic process as well as made consultations more patient-centred and specific to that individual's needs. We would highly recommend the workshops to all GP practices"
