Rights and Responsibilities

You will be treated as an individual and will be given courtesy and respect at all times. You will receive the most appropriate care, given by suitably qualified people, and no care will be given without your informed consent. In return we would ask you to treat all doctors and staff with courtesy and respect. We would also ask that you try to follow the medical advice offered, and take any medication as advised. 

We strongly support the NHS policy of zero tolerance. Any patient attending the practice who abuses the doctors, staff or other patients verbally, physically or in any threatening manner whatsoever, will risk immediate removal from the practice list. 

Medications – Benzodiazepines and Opiates

You should provide official proof of repeat medications, e.g. a reorder slip from your previous practice. 

It is our policy to review medication and offer dose reduction where appropriate to ensure effective and safe prescribing, particularly for drugs that can be harmful or addictive. These include Diazepam, Gabapentin, Pregabalin, Lorazepam, Temazepam and Tramadol. By registering with us you are agreeing to work with us to make sure your medication is appropriate for you.

You will be assigned to a doctor who will be your Named Accountable GP. 

You will be added to the practice list, not an individual doctor. You can ask to be seen by any of the doctors in the surgery but it will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice on a particular day or time.

Your NHS number is a 10 digit number, like 485 777 3456. You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it.

When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

Your medical records remain with your registered GP but we will provide you with full medical care while you are in the area. If you leave the UK for a period of more than three months the doctor is no longer responsible for your medical care and may not provide repeat medication in your absence.

You can register with us if you are homeless or of no fixed abode but reside within the practice boundary. Further information can be found on the NHS website.

From 2020, adults in England will be considered potential donors unless they choose to opt out or are excluded. For more information please visit the Organ Donation NHS UK where you can also register your decision.

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 our Practice for up to 14 days. After 14 days, you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient. Contact reception for further information.

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.
