Registration with the surgery
 

All UK residents have the right within the NHS to be registered with a GP Surgery. We are delighted to accept new patients living in our Practice area onto our list. Usually that includes people in the following post-codes W1, WC1 and WC2 and parts of NW1, W2 & SW1.

Commuter Patients (currently suspended) 
For full details regarding this service please telephone us or visit our Surgery. 

 
If you wish to register with us, please telephone us or visit our surgery and talk to one of our receptionists.

 

Alternatively fill in a pre-registration form and visit our Surgery regarding registration and new patient health check with the nurse.

 

To help in the registration process, please download a registration form.

 

You will need to complete a registration form for each member of your household. It would be a great help if you could bring with you your up-to-date medical card. If you cannot find it, don't despair, but please ensure you know the following details so that a registration form can be completed:

 
  • Full name, (including previous names)
  • last GP name and address
  • Date and place of birth
  • Last address
  • New address and post code
 

At least one proof of Identity is required (e.g. Passport, Driving License) and one document of proof of your place of residence e.g. Utility Bill, Rent Book, Tenancy Agreement etc.


Medical Record

Your medical record will automatically be recalled from your previous Surgery when you register here. It may take up to 8 weeks for your record to arrive so we ask you to also complete a New Patient Health Form.

 

We ask all new patients to complete a questionnaire about their health to ensure that the Doctors and Nurses here have a brief personal history and an understanding of your health needs before your full record is available. Please give as much information as possible, and please include immunisation details for children. If you are not sure whether you have completed your forms correctly, please ask the Receptionist.

Keeping us up-to-date


Please let us know of any change in your name, address or telephone number.


Temporary Residents


The doctors are prepared to see any of your family and friends who need a doctor when they are staying with you. Similarly, when you are away from home in the UK you can visit any local doctor as a temporary resident, without having to register.

Travel Advice


Try and make an appointment with our Practice Nurse at least six weeksin advance of travel for our nurse to advise & assess on all the necessary vaccinations and malaria prevention for ANY destination worldwide. Most of the vaccinations can be done at the surgery. Please note that, although the advice is free, some vaccinations are not available on the NHS and there will be a charge for malaria prescriptions.

 
 
Keeping well after hours
 

What to do when you are unwell and the surgery is closed

Self-care – A well-stocked medicine cabinet with medicines in date will help with many common complaints, such as coughs, colds, minor cuts and bruises. Keep medicines out of children’s reach and always follow instructions on the label. If the symptoms do not go away or they get worse you should contact your pharmacist or call the surgery number 0207 534 6570 or call 111. 

 

Ensure your medicine cabinet is well stocked with: paracetamol, anti-diarrhoeal medicine, rehydration mixture, indigestion remedy, plasters and a thermometer

 

For internet information on all aspects of health and health care, go to www.nhs.uk  It allows you to check your symptoms, check hundreds of conditions and treatments and find telephone numbers and addresses for most NHS organisations, including hospitals and GPs. Alternatively you can review your symptoms and get great information at www.patient.co.uk

 

Call 111- NHS 111 is a new service that's being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency.

 

NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time
