Pride in Practice

Kirkburton Health Centre are committed to being a safe and inclusive space for all our patients.

We are very proud to have been awarded a "Pride In Practice Bronze Award" in 2020 and we are now working towards our Gold Award.

We are always looking to improve the care we offer and we would love to receive any feedback from our LGBTQ+ patients regarding your expereinces at Kirkburton Health Centre.

Did you know we have a Patient Participation Group who meet 4 times a year and help to feedback and develop the services and care we offer at the surgery? We would love for you to be involved. Please ask at reception for further details.

As a Practice we offer care to all patients regardless of your sexual orientation or gender. We strive to achieve inclusivity for everyone and to ensure we provide excellent health care services equally.

We are a safe space that patients can visit knowing they will be treated with the confidentiality, respect and dignity that they deserve.
