Anyone who moves to live within our boundary can register with us by calling into the surgery and completing a registration form, as well as a new patient questionnaire. You will need to bring with you photographic proof of ID, such as a passport or photo driving licence, and proof of residence, such as utility bill or tenancy agreement. If you are registering a child under 6 years, please bring their immunisation record (red book). We will then undertake procedures to ensure that your medical records are forwarded from your previous practice. If you are registered with another practice in the area, we will ask you to meet with one of our GP partners prior to registration.
You will be registered with the practice, not a specific doctor. If you have a particular preference of practitioner, please inform reception when you register. This will be recorded but appointments will depend upon availability. Our medical records are computerised so any clinician you see will have full access to your details.
On registration we will give you a copy of this leaflet and will write to invite you to make an appointment for a health check.
Patients who are registered for NHS services elsewhere and are in the area for up to 3 months can be seen as a temporary patient. Those who require immediate attention can be seen as immediately necessary.
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.
