Get support to access healthcare

Gypsy and Traveller communities experience significant health inequalities and issues in accessing health services. Our outreach team is working with NHS and Public Health to make the most relevant health and social care information and services more accessible to communities. We do this through our specialist outreach and referral services.

We offer support with:

  • registering with the doctor and dentist
  • accessing primary immunisations and flu jabs
  • accessing treatment for long-term conditions
  • healthy eating and stopping smoking
  • accessing antenatal care

Contact us if you’d like help to access any health service, and we’ll arrange for one of our experienced outreach team members to visit you.
