LGBTQ+ Services

We are proud to be a Pride in Practice GP Surgery. Which means all staff have training provided by the LGBTQ+ Foundation. We hope that our LGBTQ+ community can access our services without fear from prejudice and receive up to date, informed, evidence based health care.

Feedback is always welcome, so if you feel we have got things wrong or could do things better please let us know at and we will strive to improve.

We also welcome any volunteers to Ashville’s wonderful group of practice health champions , who are providing some great activities at Ashville and in the local community to improve wellbeing and support mental health.

If you are feeling brave or just wondering about the idea of becoming a volunteer please don’t hesitate to contact Ashville on the email above.
