Guidelines for the care of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans patients in primary care

Royal College of General Practitioners Northern Ireland

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGB and T) patients are at a higher risk of depression, self-harm, suicide, and substance misuse compared to the general population. GPs should be aware that LGB and T people may find it more difficult to seek help and access services, often for fear of discrimination. An understanding and supportive GP is essential to the long-term health of this patient population.

This Guidelines summary covers consultation issues, health screening, and sexual health.
