Proud to be a Safe Surgery

A 'Safe Surgery’s is a GP practice which recognizes the barriers to healthcare that exist, particularly for migrants in vulnerable circumstances, and believes that small changes in practice can make a difference.

They are willing to lead by example and work to ensure that nobody in their community is excluded. At Grand Union Health Centre, we have declared ourselves as a 'Safe Surgery'. We commit to taking steps to tackle the barriers faced by those who are vulnerable to ensure they are able to access healthcare.

This means we will ensure that lack of ID or proof of address, immigration status or language will not be barriers when registering as patients at our practice.

All are welcome!

Your nationality or immigration status do not affect your right to register here
