Having to disclose to people is not always easy. Speaking to doctors and nurses I generally find easy, but not always reception staff. However the receptionists at the Docs were amazing. They were kind, understanding, emphatic and not patronizing. They made it easy that day to discuss my needs, and treated my with respect. They have always been friendly and warm, that is why I felt comfortable speaking to them. I'd recommend them to anyone!

Or know of any more groups please Gay Man 11:07 Fri 1st August 2014 “I met with Dr. Twiss and she was lovely, among other things discussed our conversation included sexual health issues and sexual orientation; it flowed in a very relaxed and friendly fashion. I felt extraordinarily comfortable talking with her and wish more doctors were as open and aware as she seems to be.” Anonymous 09:35 Wed 28th May 2014 “I’m not always open about my sexual orientation, especially in a healthcare setting but after seeing The LGF’s condoms on the reception desk and in the consultation room, I chatted to the nurse openly and felt really relaxed!” Anonymous 11:49 Wed 30th April 2014 'Enlightened forward thinking and really fantastic!'

I’ll see any GP or nurse because I know I’ll get good care. Bryn 18:52 Sun 8th December 2013 This place closed about 2 years ago and has been derelict ever since! There are no gay bars in Morecambe. Anonymous 13:00 Tue 29th October 2013 They made me feel at ease by using appropriate terminology. A non-heterosexist healthcare environment – spread the word of good practice! Anonymous 14:16 Tue 8th October 2013 It is the first time I have felt that my sexuality wasn’t patholigized and that I am being treated as an ordinary person seeking ordinary medical assistance irrespective of my sexual identity. Yet, at the same time, it has been clear that they understand that my needs can sometimes be different to those of a heterosexual woman and are more than happy to meet them. It isn’t one-size fits all.” Anonymous 10:00 Thu 15th August 2013 I have a fantastic GP - Dr Phil Clode at City Health Centre. I suffered from depression (it really wasn't Manchester's fault!), Dr Clode was really helpful and gave me a leaflet about The LGF and made me aware of LGBT services on offer within Manchester. It is a great practice and I wanted to pass on my positive experience. Mac 16:47 Thu 1st August 2013 LOVE beareoke on a Sunday!!
