Multilingual videos help explain social distancing and Covid support to Crawley patients

Four doctors’ surgeries in Crawley have produced multilingual videos explaining the importance of social distancing and the Covid-19 support available to patients.

The videos – in Urdu, Tamil, Arabic and Gujarati – make up part of the work being carried out by the Crawley Care Collaborative Primary Care Network to ensure Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) patients receive the advice and support needed during the pandemic.

The network is made up of the Bridge Medical Centre, Langley Corner Surgery, Leacroft Medical Practice and Southgate Medical Group.

Tracy Olckers, a social prescriber link worker for the network, said the teams was ‘very conscious of the impact Covid-19 is having on all of our patients but particularly on our Black and Minority Ethnic patients’.
