If you want to join our practice you will be required to complete a New Patient Form and questionnaire which can be available from the reception and you will need to provide a valid proof of address (e.g. utility bill) and a proof of ID (e.g. passport, driving licence).
For patients that are new to the country and are from outside the EU, you will also be required to provide a valid passport and visa.
Once you have complied with these requirements one of our receptionists will make an appointment for you to see ou Practice nurse for a new patient health check. Following your health check your details will be entered onto our practice list and you will receive your new medical card from the registration department at the health authority in about six weeks.
Crosshall catchment area
It covers up to Crittals Corner and down as far as the Priory School within a circular radius of the surgery. The catchment area has recently been extended to Petts Wood (bounded by Hazelmere Road Queensway).
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
You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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.
