Advice to vulnerable patient groups

NHS England has co-produced a series of leaflets which give advice to vulnerable patient groups on how to register with a GP. The groups are; asylum seekers and refugees, homeless people and gypsy/roma/ traveller groups.

The leaflets, which are available on the NHS Choices website, will advise patients on how to find a GP practice in the local area and assist in registering with the practice. The leaflet also asks that if practices refuse to register a patient, an explanation is given.
