Patients who are outside our area

The practice is not currently taking part in the voluntary scheme to register patients outside of our practice area.

Periodically our doctors will review their lists of patients and look at those who are registered here but are outside our practice area.  If you are not currently receiving ongoing care for a current episode of illness or your health is currently stable and well managed, we will write to you to ask you to register with a doctor who covers your area.

We are currently going through this process and some of our patients will receive letters asking them to register elsewhere.  We do appreciate that moving surgeries can be upsetting but in the longer term getting to know your new practice and building a relationship with your doctor will be beneficial should you become ill in the future.

If you are not sure where your nearest surgery is you can find the closest services to you at NHS Choices
