GRT community outreach

Healthcare for all

Our Equity Team has extensive expertise working with the Gypsy, Roma, Traveller Community – in partnership with the team at First Community. This vital programme of community engagement is part of a wider ABC priority to ensure access to healthcare for those who are not registered at a GP and without ongoing access to primary care. The aim is to bring our services into the heart of the community and this has included delivering vaccinations and health checks in homes and familiar community settings.

This approach has been documented in an NHS England Case Study, which provides an overview of our work to address discrepancies in vaccine uptake.
