REGISTRATION

REGISTER AS A NEW PATIENT

Our register is open and we are accepting registration requests from patients living in our catchment area. Please check here for our Practice Catchment Area to see if you can register with us. 

If you are living in our area and wish to register with us, please complete the GMS1 Registration Form, the Adult Registration Form (the Child Registration Form if under 16 years old), the Online Access Registration Form and the New Patient-Practice Agreement Form by clicking on each of the links below in our Registration Pack. Please print off and complete all the appropriate forms, depending on the age of each patient wanting to register. You can either then pop them in the post or email them to us at swlccg.centralsurgery@nhs.net with a copy of the following documentation;

One photographic proof of identification, either a photo driving licence or passport

AND

One proof of your current address, which can either be a recent utility bill (no less than 2 months old), or a mortgage / bank statement or a letter from your landlord or a rental agreement.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHERE THERE ARE SEVERAL PEOPLE FROM ONE HOUSEHOLD REGISTERING YOU MUST EMAIL EACH PERSON'S REGISTRATION APPLICATION WITH SUPPORTING EVIDENCE SEPARATELY. 

All our new patients are offered a health check with a member of our clinical team to check that all required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

If you need any help with this process, please call us on 020 8399 6622 where our reception team will be happy to assist and answer any questions.

TEMPORARY PATIENT REGISTRATIONS

If you are ill while away from your usual place of residence or if you are not registered with a regular doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from us up to 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

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.

You can be registered as a temporary patient with us for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our practice list and still remain a patient at your normal GP surgery. After three months though you will have to register as a permanent patient with us if you are still residing in our catchment area.

 

MOVING OUT OF THE PRACTICE CATCHMENT AREA

Central Surgery has a strict registration policy which states that if a patient moves out of the practice's catchment area the patient will not be able to stay with us and will have to register with a GP in the area where they move to.

This is so the surgery remains non discriminatory and is fair to all those patients who live in the practice’s catchment area to be able to get an appointment. 

GUIDES FOR NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING PATIENTS

These fact sheets have been written to help to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
