JOINING THE NORTH HYDE PRACTICE
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
All patients registered at the surgery have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
How to register
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
Please check with reception to see if your address falls within our catchment area. You are asked to bring proof of address (Tenancy agreement, council tax bill, utility bill or bank statement) your NHS number and passport or photo ID. These documents are not a mandatory requirement and you will not be refused registration if you cannot produce them.
Your registration status with us will depend on whether you are a visitor, staying temporarily in the area or a permanent resident.
As it often takes sometime for records to be forwared from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a new patient health check with the nurse or health care assistant.
Please contact reception for further information.
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.
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
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.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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
