New Patient Registration
Joining the Practice
Our list is open to accept new patients. Please visit the surgery and complete a set of new patient registration forms.
With effect from 31/3/16, every patient has an "accountable" GP.
What does 'accountable' mean?
The accountable GP will take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement). The contract remains 'practice based', so overall responsibility for patient care has not changed. You are still free to see the clinician of your choice. The accountable GP simply oversees your care.
Patients have the right to register with the doctor of their choice, subject to acceptance by that doctor. If you leave the practice we will return your medical records as soon as they are requested by the Health Authority to pass on to your new doctor.
Your responsibility to us is:
To try to resolve any problem you may have with the doctor before asking to change.
