Safe Surgery

The Lawns Medical Practice is proud to be a Safe Surgery and is committed to providing equal access to our services for everyone in our practice area, regardless of their immigration status.

Everyone living in the UK is entitled to register and consult with a GP. It means we help to prevent and treat illness early and create a healthier society for everyone.

At The Lawns we:

  • Don’t insist on proof of address documents
  • Don’t insist on proof of identification
  • Never ask to see a visa or proof of immigration status
  • Do what we can to protect patient information
  • Use an interpreter, if needed
  • Display posters and have a noticeboard dedicated to reassuring patients that our surgery is a safe space
  • Empower our frontline staff with training and an inclusive registration policy
