Registration

To register, please attend reception at a less busy time, preferably with your medical card/NHS number.

To give continuous and more personal care, we would encourage you to see the same doctor, especially for an on-going problem.

Appointments are pre-bookable up to one month in advance with each doctor. If you would prefer to see a female or male doctor about a particular problem, this can usually be arranged.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please inform us as soon as possible. Frequent non attendees may be asked to register elsewhere.

Latecomers may be asked to re-book.

WELCOME TO THE PRACTICE

Dear Patient,

We are pleased to welcome you as a new patient to our Practice.

Please help us to process your application quickly by bringing in your completed forms as soon as possible. Please do not post these, but call in and see us at the surgery.

Due to new NHS Guidelines it is imperative when registering your details that we have your NHS number, maiden name if applicable and post code. Your NHS number can be obtained from your medical card or by telephoning your current GP.

Registration will take place when we have received your completed forms and entered your details on the computer system. Should you in the meantime require urgent medical advice the Doctor will see you on an emergency basis for one consultation.

SUMMARY CARE RECORD – your emergency care summary

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care.

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.

Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, the doctors treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.

Your GP practice is supporting Summary Care Records and as a patient you have a choice:

  • Yes I would like a Summary Care Record – you do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be created for you.
  • No I do not want a Summary Care Record – click here to download a printable opt out form (in PDF format). Please complete the form and hand it to a member of the GP practice staff.
 

If you need more time to make your choice you should let your GP Practice know.

For more information talk to our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) 0800 389 8391, GP practice staff, visit the website www.sbpct.nhs.uk/scr or www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020.

Additional copies of the opt out form can be collected from the GP practice, printed from the website www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or requested from the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 2030.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record and you can change your mind at any time by informing your GP practice.

If you do nothing we will assume that you are happy with these changes and create a Summary Care Record for you. Children under 16 will automatically have a Summary Care Record created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 and feel that they are old enough to understand, then you should make this information available to them.
