As per Department of Health guidelines, we accept registrations from patients that have a permanent address in our practice area. Unfortunately we cannot accept registrations from patients who currently reside in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
PRACTICE POLICY - We are unable to register you if you live out of our practice area or over the border in to Wales. This is in line with local policy, we are not allowed to accept patients out of this area. These will get rejected by our registration links authority. We are also reviewing our list of our current out of area patients who are now out of our practice area and you may receive a letter advising you to register nearer your home address. We will give you 30 days to do this. If there is a concern, please get in touch, i.e. you are currently under referral, elderly frail/under cancer/palliative treatment. We can therefore then delay you having to move practice until appropriate.
NHS policy - The GP surgery can refuse registration for reasons such as they are not taking new patients or it's too far away from your home and you need home visits.
We welcome student patients at the practice. Please pop into the surgery to complete an application form.
Visitors / Temporary Residents
If you are visiting the area or are a temporary resident, we may be able to see you as a temporary resident. Please contact the surgery for further information.
If you feel that you require immediate medical attention, there is an Urgent Care centre based at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
What Happens Next
Once your application has been accepted by the practice, we will apply for your medical records from your previous surgery. Please note that this can take up to 6 weeks as per NHS guidelines.
Please ensure that you have enough medication from your previous surgery to last whilst we transition you over to our practice.
Should you need medication whilst your records are being forwarded to us, please make a routine appointment with a GP.
We are currently not accepting registrations for patients from other surgeries based in the Fountains Health building.
