Portcullis is a LGBT inclusive practice

Posted on February 23rd, 2022

Portcullis is a LGBT inclusive practice
 
It is estimated that on average, GP surgeries will have around 300 patients who identify as LGBT, and some of these patients will have specific medical needs that often go unmet. LGBT patients are more reluctant to access healthcare and may delay/ avoid getting treatment due to fears of encountering LGBT phobia.
 
At Portcullis Surgery we are committed to ensuring people feel confident to use our services no matter who you are and we are committed to making sure all our patients feel supported and listened to.
 
If your GP is made aware of your sexual orientation and gender identity this can help identify your health care needs. Only you can decide if you would like to share with us what sexual identity best describes you. By asking this question to our patients, we are trying to become more inclusive as a practice and allow patients to self-disclose this information, if you choose to and improve health outcomes as a result.
 
If you are already registered with us and would like to share information about your gender identity or sexual orientation, please send us this information by filling in the confidential form in the website below
