Proof of ID / Address - Practice Policy
This practice has a policy to check the identification and residency of all newly registered patients. This is recommended by the Department of Health and is designed to reduce NHS fraud.
As part of the registration process you will be asked to bring in both photographic identification and proof of address documents from the suggested list below.
This list is in order of preferred documents but as a last resort you may have other document types that we haven’t listed that may also be acceptable.
Photographic ID documents
Proof of address documents
Please contact us if you have any questions about this policy
New Patient Medical Questionnaire
As part of your registration you will also be asked to fill out a new patient medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. Please collect a form when you attend the surgery to complete it. Forms can be found here :
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
