Registering to be an out of area patients – Patient Choice
If you have moved outside of our Practice boundary and would like to remain with us, you can now apply to register as an out of area patient. This request will be considered by the Practice to ensure this is appropriate for your health care needs.
With this registration, there are some changes for you to consider.
- Due to the distance you have moved away from the surgery, we will be unable to provide home visits. If you required a visit you could do this through NHS 111 service. This would be triaged in the same way we would, and a local GP would be assigned if this is needed
- You will be able to continue using our online consulting service – eConsult which is our digital triage platform that allows you to make medical or administrative requests direct to a GP. CLICK here for eConsult
- To request prescriptions. This could be done by using the NHS App. This can be downloaded on a mobile phone, desktop or laptop computer. The medication will be send to a pharmacy of your choosing.
