Register as New Patient
As of 1st March 2019 Giltbrook Surgery will only be registering patients who live in the catchment area
Any current patients who are registered with us that live out of our catchment area will be asked to register with a new GP in their catchment area at their next presentation to our surgery.
New Patient Registration
Please bring your medical card to the surgery if possible, or alternatively a form is available from reception.
All newly registered patients will be given an appointment with the Practice Nurse within one month of registering.
A routine health care examination will then be undertaken. Children under 5 are invited to join our Child Health Surveillance programme.
All new patients are welcome to join our friendly Patient Participation Group just register your interest now on line or mention to the receptionist when joining the practice
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
These fact sheets have been written 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.
