Communications News: Guide Dogs targets all UK GP surgeries

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association has begun a campaign targeting GP surgeries across the country in an effort to raise standards of service for the visually impaired.

The campaign, which aims to reach every surgery in the country, follows a survey by Guide Dogs that found that many visually impaired people felt their GPs do not cater sufficiently for their needs.

Guide Dogs launched the campaign with support from the Royal College of General Practitioners. It wants improvements such as safe buildings, good signage, accessible information and staff training, said Tom Pey, the charity's director of policy.
