GP registration for Inclusion Health populations

Doctors of the World UK (DOTW) is pleased to share GP access cards for NHS England, NHS Wales and NHS Scotland to encourage GP registration.

It is crucial that GP practices do not turn people away if they lack proof of ID, address, or immigration status.

People can also register if they do not know or do not have an NHS number.

Please help us improve access to healthcare by using the resources below to support the people you are working with to register with a GP.
