The UK Equality Act 2010 says that LGBT+ people must be treated fairly and without discrimination.
North Street Medical Care provides equality of services and care to everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation. We are an open, non-judgemental and inclusive place for people that identify as LGBT+.
LGBT+ stands for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender and the + simply means that we are inclusive of all identities, regardless of how people define themselves.
We have a zero tolerance for racist, homophobic, ageist, disablist, transphobic, sexist or antireligious language and actions.
We ensure confidentiality to all staff and service users, unless they personally choose for their beliefs or sexuality to be open themselves. Confidentiality can be a matter of personal safety rather than purely about privacy.
Further guidance and advice for our LGBT+ patients is available here:
