Healthwatch Darlington GP Registration and Accessibility Report


Healthwatch Darlington are pleased to share with you our latest report. 

Please find attached our Black, Minority and Ethnic Communities GP Registration and Accessibility Report. 

The team at Healthwatch Darlington including our volunteer Health Connectors have been looking at the provisions in place for patients from minority groups living in Darlington. We have looked closely at registration and accessibility within GP practices after it was brought to our attention that some patients may be experiencing problems. 

This report includes recommendations which we will be sharing with providers and commissioners to encourage positive change. 

We would like to thank everyone who has been involved and we would like to give a special thank you to the involvement of our volunteer Health Connectors who have been right at the heart of our research and report writing.
