We welcome new patients who wish to register and who live in the area of the Practice.
How To Register
Please collect a registration form from Reception. When the form is completed, please return it to the Practice.
As a new patient, you will be encouraged to make an appointment with the Healthcare Assistant for a health check.
When registering as a new patient you have the right to express a preference for a Practitioner.
National Data Opt Out
The national data opt-out is a service that allows patients to opt-out of their confidential information being used for research and planning
About opting out:
- information can be found at the website nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters
- make sure you know your NHS number
- ensure you have an up-to-date email address or mobile number in your GP practice record, as this will be used to verify your identity when you use the online service
Patients who previously had a type 2 opt-out:
Where a patient previously had a type 2 opt-out registered on or before 11 October 2018, this was automatically converted to a national data opt-out.
Patients can be reassured that their choices will continue to be respected. If they want to change their choice, they can use the national data opt-out service to do this.
Patients who have a type 1 opt out:
Some patients will have a type 1 opt-out registered with their GP practice, which indicates they do not want their confidential patient information leaving the practice for research and planning purposes. These existing type 1 opt-outs will continue to be respected until 2020, when the Department of Health and Social Care will consult with the National Data Guardian on their removal. GP practices will continue to record and apply a patients type 1 opt-out choice
Named Accountable GP
GP practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP. If you do not know the name of your Accountable GP or want to change who this is please ask at reception.
THE ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION STANDARD (SCCI 1605)
As part of the accessible information standard, organisations that provide NHS or adult social care must do five things.
- Ask people if they have any information or communication needs, and find out how to meet their needs.
- Record those needs clearly and in a set way.
- Highlight or flag the person’s file or notes so it is clear that they have information or communication needs and how to meet those needs
- Share information about people’s information and communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care when they have consent or permission to do so.
- Take steps to ensure that people receive information which they can access and understand, and receive communication support if they need it.
If you need any of the information we send out to you in an alternative format (e.g. large print or easy read) or if you need help with communication with us (e.g. use British sign language or are hard of hearing) then please let us know to enable your records to be updated.
