Register as a New Patient
When you register at the surgery you will be asked to complete a GMS1 form. You will also be given a health questionnaire, which must be completed as fully as possible and returned with your GMS1 form. You can also register with the practice on-line by following the links below.
Please fill out the registration forms IN FULL. Incomplete forms will cause a delay to your registration being processed.
NOTE: If you are a parent registering your child, or are under 18 years of age please complete the health questionnaire but exclude the alcohol monitoring.
Please bring in any immunisation history you may have.
The practice boundary covers Hale Barns and parts of Hale and Timperley. Please ask our administration team for further details.
We can only register patients that live within the practice boundary. If you move to an address that falls outside of our boundary you will need to register with another practice. In order to be fair & equitable we are unable to make exceptions on an individual patient basis.
Once registered patients have the right to express a preference of practitioner but your named accountable GP will be Dr M Patel.
Out of Area Registrations
The practice has opted not to participate in the Patient Choice Scheme which allows GP practices to register patients who live outside the practice boundary, without any obligation to provide home visits or out of hours services when the patient is unable to attend their registered 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.
