1. As Lambeth celebrates our first Refugee Week as a Borough of Sanctuary, we highlight the ‘Safe Surgeries’ initiative in GP practices in the borough. This supports asylum seekers and refugees to access health care without facing unnecessary barriers.

    By signing up to become a Safe Surgery, GP practices receive training and expert advice on steps they can take to ensure that refugees and forced migrants are able to register easily, are reassured that that their patient information is protected, and that they have language support if needed.

  2. Hundreds of Lambeth residents from Black African and Caribbean communities enjoyed an afternoon of health information, health checks and conversation last month in Streatham in an event organised by local GP practices.

    A wide range of organisations were at the event to offer holistic support to local people to improve their health and wellbeing.

  3. This Cervical Screening Awareness Week (19 – 24 June 2023), the NHS is encouraging anyone who has received an invitation for cervical screening to book their appointment now.

    Our health, Our Lambeth (Lambeth’s five year health and Care plan) sets out how Lambeth health and care services will work to ensure that people receive early diagnosis and support for physical health conditions.
