PLEASE NOTE

From January 2015 patients may choose to register at a surgery of their choice. Patients who live out with the ‘traditional’ practice boundaries will have their registration reviewed individually to assess whether it is ‘clinically reasonable’ for the patient to register or remain registered at the Practice as those patients who are out with the ‘traditional’ boundaries will cease the right to home visiting and out of hours services when the patient is unable to attend their registered practice. The practice will notify the patient of successful registration via a letter explaining fully registration type. 

In addition those patients who are deemed out of area but have been accepted as a patient can and will be reviewed periodically to ensure that the registration type is still clinically appropriate and practical for this registration arrangement. If it is professionally decided that this arrangement is no longer clinically appropriate the practice will inform the patient by letter.

For more information about registering with a General Practitioner please visit: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/doctors/Pages/NHSGPs.aspx  

You should not be refused registration or appointments because you don’t have a proof of address or personal identification at hand. It is not considered a reasonable ground to refuse registration. This also applies if you are an asylum seeker, refugee, a homeless patient or an overseas visitor, whether lawfully in the UK or not.

If you fall under one of the above mentioned patient groups, please download one of the ‘How to register with a GP’ patient leaflets below and bring it with you when you register with a GP practice. If you have problems registering with the practice, there is advice on what do to and where to go for further support.

DNA Policy

Due to an increase in the number of waster appointments through patients failing to attend appointments without informing the surgery, it has become necessary to implement a strict Did Not Attend Policy. If you repeatedly fail to attend appointments you may be removed from this practice list and required to find an alternative doctor. If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, giving at least 24 hours' notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.
