HOW TO REGISTER
Your Rights and Responsibilities
You may register with this practice if you live within our practice area.
To register with our Practice, just ask at Reception and you will be given a registration form to complete and a questionnaire about your medical history. Your registration is then immediate.
Although you may be registered with a particular doctor, you can make appointments with any doctor of your choice, though you may not always be able to get an appointment with that doctor at short notice. You will be able to see the on-call doctor for an urgent problem within 24 hours, but if you want to see a particular doctor, you will have to wait for the first available appointment with that doctor.
Apart from geographical reasons, the only other grounds that we may use for refusing to accept a patient would be a previous breakdown in the relationship with the GP, or a history of violence.
We would ask that at all times you show respect to our staff
We reserve the right to take steps to have any patient who is violent or abusive removed from our list after due warning.
If you are not able to keep an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so that someone else can use it.
Out of Area Registration
If you move outside of our normal boundaries or already outside of them it is still possible to register with us on a restricted basis as an Out of Area patient. The restriction is that we will not provide you with home visits which instead will be provided by the nearest doctors’ practice to where you live. Please ask at Reception if you are interested in this type of registration for which some further clinical restrictions may apply depending on your healthcare needs.
