JOINING THE NORTH HYDE PRACTICE
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
All patients at the North Hyde Practice can see any of the doctors practising here or if you prefer you can see the same GP for continuity.
Practice Boundary Area?
To register with the surgery, please check that you live in our catchment area above.
If you live outside this area then you can register with us as an Out-of-area patient (see info below). Please note that certain conditions apply to Out-of-Area registrations.
Out Of Area Registration Policy
GP practices are now able to register patients who live outside their usual NHS registration area if it is clinically appropriate. It is important to note that a number of important conditions apply to this new type of registration.
If you live outside of our usual registration area and choose to register with us as an Out-of Area patient, you will not be able to receive a home visit from the Surgery if you become unwell or immobile. You may also find that some maternity, district nursing and other community-based services are more difficult to access, as different NHS arrangements may apply where you live.
Please contact reception for further information.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
Temporary Patient Registration
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 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.
Are you a military veteran? If so please let us know as you may be eligible for priority care. For more information click on this link
