3. We explain in the guides which paperwork would be helpful for us. We can register people without paperwork but we have to be very accurate with names and details when we create new NHS records. Your documents really help us with this.
4. Anything else you think would help such as photographs of medicine packets would be good.
You need to scan in all the paperwork you have completed for registering by email and send by email to us at LCP.locala-WhitehouseCentre@nhs.net. Please note this is not a secure email connection.
You will receive a text message, within 5 days, when you are registered. You will then be contacted within 6 weeks by telephone for a new patient assessment. If you are unwell before then or need medicines, please call us.
If we cannot process your registration due to insufficient information we will telephone to try and resolve the problem. If we are still unable to process the registration we will write to you to explain that we have not been able to register you.
New patients are initially taken on for 12 months. After that date their registration will be reviewed with a view to transferring to a regular practice.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
This link has been removed as it was causing problems with obtaining sufficient information to lead to successful registration.
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
