Access for undocumented patients

  • Latest news

Londonwide LMCs and London’s individual LMCs continue to share information about enabling patients to register for general medical services with GP practices and for Covid-19 vaccinations, regardless of immigration status or whether they are able to provide proof of address or ID.

Access to services should be in line with NHS England cuidance around GP registration. There is also this leaflet to assist patients in asserting their right to be registered if initially refused, including how to raise the issue with NHS England if not satisfactorily resolved. All patients’ right to access Covid-19 vaccinations without documents or a GP registration is detailed here.

The Doctors of the World Safe Surgeries Toolkit and BMA guidance are helpful resources, both of which have been included in previous LMC newsletters.
