What Happens Next?

We will enter your details onto our computer system, and for patients who have previously registered with a doctor in the UK arrange for transfer of your medical records to us.

If you need to see a doctor or nurse you can book an appointment from one week after we have received your completed forms. This is to allow us time to process your registration.

If you take regular medication for contraception, asthma, hay fever, acne or eczema you will need to book an appointment with one of our specialist nurses at least a week before your medication runs out. (Please tell reception which condition your medication is for so they can direct you to the correct nurse).

All other medications please book an appointment with a doctor at least one week before your medication runs out.

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
  • Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, where possible.
