We are LGBT+ Friendly
At Langworthy Medical Practice we strive to provide a supportive and safe environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) individuals. We believe in fairness, equality, and above all value diversity.
While most health issues affecting LGBT+ individuals are similar to those of the general population, we know that LGBT+ people have unique health needs and experience disparities in care.
In 2018 Langworthy Medical Practice was awarded a Gold standard for ‘excellence in LGBT healthcare’ through LGBT Foundation’s Pride in Practice quality assurance scheme which trains and accredits GP practices for ongoing support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans patients.
This is something that all staff at the practice are very proud of. Due to our commitment to improve our service and create a more inclusive environment for LGBT+ people, we are continually looking to improve our services.
We would like to ask all our patients who identify as LGBT+ to let us know how we can continue to improve our service to you.
If you need any help or support, please do ask the Practice Manager /our clinical team.
