Support for non-English Speakers to register with a GP

Support for non-English Speakers to register with a GP

Mansfield CVS is offering support to those who are struggling to register with a GP.

The NHS deal with thousands of people going to A&E each year, when not needed because they are not registered with a GP.

One of the reasons people do not get registered with a local doctor is because of a language barrier or a fear that they will need an NHS number or fixed address.

Although preferable to have, anyone can register to be a patient at a GP surgery. You do not need

  • Proof of immigration status
  • A fixed address
  • An NHS number

To register with a GP, you can find more information at www.nhs.uk/register or you call your local surgery and ask to be registered. 

If you are struggling to register, call Lesley Watkins on 01623 392444 or email lwatkins@mansfieldcvs.org for support.
