Minority Community Registration Campaign

The Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service (PKAVS) Minority Communities Hub is encouraging ethnic minorities to register to their local GP.

Now they’ve developed registration forums in multiple languages to help make signing up more accessible.

A spokesperson said: “Learning both locally and nationally indicates that GP registration levels are lower in some demographics of minority ethnic communities, particularly newer arrivals and migrant workers in industries such as food production, agriculture and hospitality, which may impact uptake of the vaccine within those groups.”

As part of their campaign, PKAVS has made some graphics to be shared on social media which explains the role of GP and gives a step by step guide to registering.

They also added: “These are currently provided in English, Bulgarian, Polish, Romanian and Spanish in line with the demographics we are aiming this campaign at locally, however we are more than happy to discuss collaboration with partners who may be seeking this information in other languages or formats.” 

PKAVS is also offering help and support for people applying to their GP on 07935 756738.
