Open Door is a GP practice located in the East Marsh ward of Grimsby, which is in the most deprived 1 per cent of wards in England. As well as providing standard GP practice services, Open Door also provides extensive wraparound support to underserved individuals such as homeless individuals, people with substance misuse problems, asylum seekers and sex workers. The practice also holds the Violent Patient Register for North East Lincolnshire.
