Disability and Discrimination

We will provide care, now and in the future, to all our patients without discrimination and irrespective of patient’s age, sex, race, beliefs or special needs. We expect that patients will show no discrimination towards other surgery users, members of the practice team or our colleagues in the NHS.

All organisations that provide NHS or publicly funded adult social care must fully implement and conform to the Accessible Information standard per Section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The Standard has been established to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are issued information that they can access and understand and that they can also receive any communication support they need.

It is of particular relevance to individuals who are blind, d/Deaf, deaf blind and/or who have a learning disability, although it will support anyone with information or communication needs relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss affects their ability to communicate.

If you wish to update your communication needs and methods please contact the practice team.
