Pride in Practice LGBT Patient Experience Survey 2021
Published: 22 April 2022 Tags: By LGBT Foundation
Our Pride in Practice programme works with GP practices, dental surgeries, pharmacies and optometrists to ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people have access to inclusive healthcare that understands and meets the needs of our communities.
We are thrilled to release for all to read our LGBT Patient Experience Survey 2021.
This survey, undertaken in 2021, reflects the wider challenges reported by many when accessing primary care services during the pandemic and, as healthcare professionals, we should be especially concerned when access and experience worsens for populations that already face significant barriers to healthcare. Similar to what we see in other surveys, experience is significantly worse for trans and non-binary people, with fewer respondents from these groups stating that their GP meets their needs. The picture is also worse for LGBT people of colour and disabled LGBT people with both groups reporting higher rates of discrimination and unfair treatment.
