Patients can register at the Practice if the list is open. At present the list is open.
Registration can be done by completing a form at the reception counter or by downloading it online.
Although the Practice prefers that patients living in the same household should have the same GP in order to deliver best family health care, the Practice will register patients from the same household if it is their wish to have different GP.s.
The Practice will not decline registration on the grounds of to race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or a medical condition.
We will always give you reasons for not being accepted in writing.
We may refuse to register you because:
- if you have previously been removed from the list
- if you have a history or exhibited violence at the Practice
- it has no capacity to take on new patients
- it may not be accepting patients that do not live within its practice boundary
- in your particular circumstances, it may not be appropriate for you to register with a practice that is a long way from where you live.
Since January 2015, all GP practices in England are free to register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area, but it is for a practice to decide, at the point of registration, whether it is clinically appropriate and practical to register individual patients in that way.
