SAFE SURGERIES DECLARATION
PARKSIDE MEDICAL CENTRE IS PROUD TO BE A SAFE SURGERY FOR EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY.
In recognition of the barriers to healthcare access faced by people in vulnerable circumstances, including migrants, we commit to protecting the human rights to health. We will take steps to ensure that everyone in our community may fulfill their entitlement to quality healthcare.
In partnership with the Doctors of the World UK, we will ensure that our practice offers a welcoming space for everyone who seeks to use our services.
Mindful of our duties to uphold equality and human rights law, we will implement patient registration policies which do not discriminate based on race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status or any other characteristic.
Supported by the Safe Surgeries initiative, we will ensure that our staff understand the specific barriers faced by migrants in vulnerable circumstances and that they are empowered to mitigate these barriers, where possible.
We will ensure that a lack of identification or proof of address, immigration status or language do not prevent patient registration.
As a member of the Safe Surgeries community, we will endeavour to support other Safe Surgeries and, where appropriate, provide feedback to Doctors of the World UK to support the development of the network.
