Registering with Us
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID such as a passport, for each individual in person.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking. You will need to bring a urine sample to this appointment.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Out of Area Registration
Starting from 5th January 2015, Roundwood Surgery will be accepting patients who are out of the practice area. This is to accommodate those who have moved, will be moving or are already out of the practice area and wish to be under our care.
Please note: Although we offer this service, we cannot provide home visits for those who’re out of the area otherwise please register as normal (see above) and please print, read and sign the document below consenting to the terms of care.
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.
