VISITING THE UK
If you are visiting the UK and are wanting to register with the practice please read the following leaflet carefully and fill out the forms located above depending on your age.
OUT OF AREA
From January 2015 all GP practices are able to register patients who live outside of the defined practice area without any obligation to provide home visits.
Out of area registration is voluntary for GP practices meaning patients may be refused registration because they live out of area.
We consider all applications on an individual basis, taking into account your health problems to ensure that it is medically appropriate and practical to register you with our surgery.
To do this we may:
• Ask you or the practice you are currently registered with questions about your health
• Ask you questions about why it is practical for you to attend this practice.
This new arrangement only applies to GP practice and patients who live in England.
