GP access cards show everyone welcome in General Practice

Some people can experience barriers when trying to register with a GP. 

GP access cards have been distributed to vulnerable communities who are less likely to be registered with a GP. 

On the back of the card, you will find the NHS England Customer Contact Centre number, if you have been refused registration.

Practices should not be turning people away who try to register without proof of ID/ address or immigration status. Anyone in England is entitled to register with a GP.
