SSP practice strikes Gold for equality

SSP practice strikes Gold for equality

An SSP Health surgery has struck GOLD with the top award for good practice in caring for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) patients within the local community. 
Leigh Family Practice, in Leigh, Wigan, has been given the Gold accolade in the LGBT Foundation’s Pride of Practice accreditation, which rates primary care providers on their equality credentials and their commitment in ensuring a fully inclusive, patient-centred service. 

Awards are graded as Bronze, Silver or Gold depending on assessment results.
