Melbourne Grove and Hambleden Medical Practice is the first GP surgery in Southwark to receive a Pride in Practice Gold award for meeting the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients. 
 
The gold award is the highest possible rating available and recognises the efforts of the GP surgery in ensuring that LGBT patients get the best possible care. 
 
Delivered by the LGBT Foundation, Pride in Practice is a programme available to all GP surgeries in the borough. It works with surgery staff to strengthen relationships with LGBT patients and confidently support their needs. 
 
Surgeries that sign up receive personalised and ongoing support from the LGBT Foundation through dedicated account managers and access to resources.  
 
Congratulations to everyone at the Melbourne Grove and Hambleden Medical Practice for this tremendous achievement!
