When registering, please bring your NHS medical card to the practice and those of any other persons registering with you.
You will be asked to complete a registration form for each person registering with the practice. In addition, all patients will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire and attend a screening medical appointment with the practice nurse. This enables us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from you old practice to this one.
When handing in the completed registration forms you will also be asked for proof of ID and address.
If you move out of the practice area you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move. We can provide information about how to find a new practice.
Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. For administrative reasons your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors; however, you can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either or all of your medical needs or on a case by case basis. However, not all the doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
