New Patients (UK Registration)
Prospective patients living in Rainham, Wennington and South Hornchurch are welcome to register with the practice.
Newly registering patients are asked to fill in a medical history form and make an appointment to see their new doctor.
They are given a practice booklet containing all the details about the surgery and the services we provide.
Your registration details will be entered onto our computerised system by trained operators, which will speed up the appropriate administration processes.
When you require an appointment in the future, this will enable the receptionist to action your request quickly and accurately.
If you wish to join our Practice please ask a receptionist for a registration form for each person that wishes to register. Please bring your personal identification (eg: Driving licence or passport) and proof of address.
Should you have your medical card available please attach it to the form.
You may fill in the form straight away but we suggest you take it home to ensure you complete it fully and return with it at a more convenient time.
The form will ask you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, previous address and doctor.
This information helps the Health Authority to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new doctor.
Once you have completed and signed the form you will be automatically placed on the list of the doctor of your choice.
Shortly after this, the Health Authority will send you a new medical card with your doctor's name on for you to keep.
On the back of your registration form you are given an option to go on a central register as a donor, if you wish to do so.
If you wish to see the doctor you are welcome to make a future appointment at the time you register.
New registrations will not be seen within 48 hours of original request unless it is a medical emergency.
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.
