We’ve been working with Fylde & Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group to research the issues and barriers faced by LGB&T people in Fylde and Wyre when accessing routine healthcare services.

The research found that many LGB&T people in Fylde and Wyre feel that GPs and healthcare professionals lack awareness and training around the specific needs and health inequalities experienced by LGB&T people. This is particularly pertinent to trans people in Fylde and Wyre who feel that they often have to provide their GP with guidance and information around gender identity issues and associated treatment and referral pathways.
