Welcome To The Saltley and Fernbank Medical Practice
A Safe Surgery is a GP practice which commits to taking steps to tackle the barriers faced by the socially excluded groups, such as: migrants, rough sleepers, the homeless, and gypsy travellers in accessing healthcare. At a minimum, this means declaring your practice a ‘Safe Surgery’ for everyone and ensuring that lack of ID or proof of address, immigration status or language are not barriers to Patient Registration.
Registering as a Safe Surgery means practices can receive a range of support, including resources to support practice staff, but will also enable the socially excluded groups of people – many of whom may be vunerable and at risk to access primary care with ease and confidence.
The Safe Surgeries initiative is endorsed by the Royal College of GPs. For more information about Safe Surgery, please see the NHS website.
