Welcome to the Corbett Medical Practice

Please be assured, although we are working differently, our full practice team is still here to support you for your general medical needs.

City of Sanctuary Health Stream and Doctors of the World UK Safe Surgeries  collaboration

The Corbett Medical Practice is proud to support "Doctors of the World" in providing "Safe Surgeries" to allow access to healthcare for all patients. 

Doctors of the World - "We work tirelessly to empower excluded people to access healthcare. Working both at home and abroad through over 350 projects, we provide medical care, strengthen health systems and address underlying barriers to healthcare" 

A Safe Surgery can be any GP practice which commits to taking steps to tackle the barriers faced by many migrants in accessing healthcare. At a minimum, this means declaring your practice a ‘Safe Surgery’ for everyone and ensuring that lack of ID or proof of address, immigration status or language are not barriers to patient registration.

Safe Surgeries recognise the barriers to healthcare access that exist, particularly for migrants in vulnerable circumstances, and believe that small changes in practice can make a difference. They are willing to lead by example and work to ensure that nobody in their community is excluded.
