Since 2016, Pride in Practice has been rolled out across 445 primary care services, reaching 2 million patients across Greater Manchester. 100% of health professionals trained can evidence improvements within their service as a result of Pride in Practice. 87.5% of primary care services trained have implemented NHS England’s Sexual Orientation Monitoring Information Standard and 62% have implemented trans status monitoring. LGBT Foundation’s full Impact Report can be found online.

Pride in Practice is endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners, Greater Manchester Local Pharmaceutical Committee, the Northern Optometric Society and is part of the Healthy Living Dentistry Framework.
