New patients are asked to complete a lifestyle questionnaire when applying to join our list. We also like all new patients to have a health check with the nurse. This helps to ensure that we understand your health needs so we can provide the right care for you. You can, of course, see the doctor if you have an urgent problem.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
Please notify us of any change of your personal details so that we can amend our records; it is essential that we have your telephone number as we may need to contact you (remember you can do this online if you wish.)In order to provide the level of service we want, and to stop our list from increasing too much, we have had to draw up a practice boundary which will limit the distance that we can travel for home visits. In some cases when you move house this will take you outside our practice area. In these circumstances we will unfortunately have to ask you to re-register with another practice nearer to your new home.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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.
