How To Register As A Patient
People who wish to register as a patient at this surgery must all live within the surgery catchment area, see map on the wall by reception.
If you do live in our area please ask a receptionist and they will give you the necessary documentation to complete. In addition you will need to provide proof of Identity in the form of a passport and proof of address. European nationals will also require a European health Insurance card. If you cannot provide a previous address and the name of your previous doctor, we will not be able to process your registration. Patients who have recently entered the UK must provide the date of entry.
In accordance with national requirements all patients will be required to complete a form detailing their ethnic origins.
If you have a carer, relative or friend that you wish us to deal with us on your behalf please advise the receptionist who will provide a form giving your authorisation for them to collect prescriptions etc on your behalf. This information will be entered onto your medical records and will stay there until you cancel this authorization.
We also require current home and mobile telephone contact numbers and email address if possible.
In the event of us declining to accept the registration of any patient that patient will be provided with the reasons for us not accepting their registration in writing eg living out of our area or previously removed from our medical list for any reason.
From time to time the Central Manchester CCG will write to all patients, to check that they are still resident in Manchester. If patients do not respond to these letters they will be considered to have moved out of the area and will be removed from our medical list. It is important that patients keep us advised of address changes otherwise the CCG will write to an old address, will receive no reply and the patient is removed by them from our list of registered patients. In the event of that happening, you may then have to find another GP as we may not be able to re-register you.
