LGBTQ+ Health & Wellbeing Services

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Members of the LGBTQ+ community can sometimes feel concerned about accessing services out of fear of experiencing discrimination, or even hostility, on the grounds of their sexual orientation, gender identity or trans status, and as a result,  often suffer with poorer health outcomes.

At Hereford Medical Group we celebrate diversity, and believe strongly in fairness and equality. 

We welcome LGBTQ+ individuals and would encourage you to speak to one of our team in confidence about any health concerns that you may have.
