Pride in Primary Care

In 2018, WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) commenced our journey towards achieving Rainbow Tick accreditation, which involves meeting the six national standards of LGBTI inclusive practice. The Rainbow Tick is essentially a confidence mark that signals an organisation has reached a high standard of diversity and inclusiveness.

A disproportionate number of LGBTI people experience poorer mental health outcomes as well as discrimination, harassment and hostility in many parts of everyday life, impacting access to health services. Given our vision of improved health equity across WA, WAPHA has an important leadership role to advocate for safe, inclusive and culturally appropriate services

Given our vision of improved health equity across WA, WAPHA has an important leadership role to advocate for safe, inclusive and culturally appropriate services for LGBTI people. We’re doing Rainbow Tick because it aligns with who we are as an organisation and what we’re all about – making primary care in WA better and more accessible for everyone.

    Take Survey
  • CLOSED: Thank you for your interest. This survey has concluded, please check back at the end of February for the results.
    Throughout August and September our HealthPathways team invited general practice staff - GPs, nurses, practice managers and other team members - to complete a survey about what training and information they would need to support them to work with LGBTI communities. Over 200 responses were received and this is now being collated to inform future work at WA Primary Health Alliance and with general practices. 
    The summary report will be shared back in this page by February 2020.
