Traveller Community

It is important that all people residing in a community register with a GP Practice as soon as they can so they can access a GP and medical staff when they are ill. For the Traveller Community who often do not have a permanent address, this can be daunting.

All travellers, gypsies or members of the Roma community are eligible to register with a GP practice

At Open Door we provide GP and health services for the Traveller Community whether at an approved or unauthorised site. Although most practices ask for an address, you are entitled to register in the area where you are, without ‘proof of address’.

We are committed to supporting the Traveller Community:

You do not have to provide ID to register, but it is helpful if you do have one of the following:

If you would like to discuss registering with us, please call our reception staff on 01472 722 000 or pop into the surgery.

In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, the practice is performing telephone triage for all patients prior to determining the best course of action for their care. Therefore, please be aware, that you will receive a call back from the appropriate medical professional to discuss your health problem.

Do not under any circumstances attend surgery without being asked to do so after telephone assessment. If you do attend for an appointment, please wear a face covering if you can.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

- A high temperature

- A new, continuous cough

- Loss or change to your sense of taste or smell

To protect others please get a test and stay at home if you have any of these symptoms.
