Here at Brynhyfryd Medical Centre, we support everyone regardless of your gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, race, or ability.

If you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) person, you are entitled to healthcare tailored to your sexual orientation and gender identity. Screening and self-checking are important ways of protecting your health. It is a good idea to be informed about which screening and self-checks you need to receive.

Sexual Health

Brynhyfryd Medical Centre provides testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) including HIV.  Alternatively you can visit Sexual Health - Swansea Bay University Health Board ( for Swansea Bay Sexual Health clinics.

Transgender Health 

If you are a transgender or non-binary person, your particular needs may be best addressed by transgender health services offered by NHS gender identity clinics (GICs). Talk to your GP about being referred to a GIC. 

If you have changed your gender on your NHS records, you may find that you are not invited to the appropriate screening tests when you should be. Talk to your GP and your consultant, if you have one, about this. Even if you have had gender-affirming treatment (such as a mastectomy), you may still need screening for certain health conditions.

LGBT people are more likely to have mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, suicidal feelings, eating disorders, self harm and substance abuse. Bullying, prejudice, and discrimination can have an impact on your mental health, your self-esteem, and your general outlook on life. LGBT people of colour are at an especially high risk of mental health problems.
