You might have seen the media pieces in the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, The Independent and Channel 4 showing how too many people in our communities are still denied the possibility of registering with their local GP practice.
But there is a silver lining to this. The report showed Manchester and Birmingham were the two most likely areas to register patients without proof of ID and/or immigration status. These two are the areas with the most Safe Surgeries, and suggests that the work all of you are doing to ensure your practices are open to everyone within your community is really having an impact.
So, from everyone here at TLHC, we just wanted to send you a very heartfelt thank you!
