If you move into our practice area, you are welcome to register at any of our three surgeries. We will complete registration paperwork for you and arrange an initial consultation and health assessment with a practice nurse or doctor.
All patients are registered with the Welby practice. You may choose to see any of the three practice doctors at any surgery. Urgent appointments are always available.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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
PATIENTS MOVING TO AN AREA OUTSIDE OF OUR CATCHMENT AREA
It is the practice policy that if patients that are registered at the practice move from living within the practice area to outside the practice area they will be de-registered from our practice list on the grounds that the patient has moved out of our area. It is the patients responsibility to re-register at a new GP surgery in the area where they are now living in order to receive continuing care.
The NHS PCSE will be able to provide you with a list of GP’s in your area to help you find a new GP. They can be contacted on 0333 0142884. Alternatively if you have access to the internet you can find GP information on the NHS Choices website http://www.nhs.uk/Service-Search/GP/LocationSearch/4
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice. Please hand this form into reception where you will be required to complete further documents and be given a New Patient Registration Pack.
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.

New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)
Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25 May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.
If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.
If you would like to opt out of any future contact via text messaging then please contact the surgery who will provide a form for completion.
Improving SMS text Communication
We want to improve the way we communicate with patients. Some of you are already receiving text message reminders for appointments. We want to widen the number of patients benefiting from this service and we want to use the service for more than just appointment reminders. For example, we might text you to let you know when a prescription is ready to collect or to ask you to come for your annual review.
From March 2018, if we've got your mobile number, we'll include you in this service unless you've opted out.
Please let us know if you would not like to be part of this service and please make sure you inform us if your mobile number changes.
