Registration


 

Tollerton Surgery welcomes new patients living in or moving into our Practice area. You can register by either calling into the Surgery and completing a registration form or by printing your own form from the Downloads section of our website. You must include full details of name, date of birth, NHS number and address, along with information about your previous Doctor. You will be required to complete a form for each family member registering at the Practice.

As part of our contractual requirement Practices in England are required to allocate all registered Patients a named GP who has overall responsiblity for coordinating the services that we are able to provide to you. This will not affect your care in any way or prevent you from seeing any of the Medical Professionals available at the practice. If you wish to be informed of your named GP please ask at reception.

The Practice has an electronic link to the registration department of the Family Health Service via NHS England who oversees the transfer of Patient records from one GP to another (GP2GP). Your medical records will be requested from your previous GP and will then be sent to us electronically a lot sooner. You can however access medical services from the time of registration, you do not have to wait until the Practice has received your paper medical records from your previous GP.

At the time of registration, you will be asked to make an appointment with our Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant for a health check. We will ask you to complete a Patient Health Questionnaire, this is so that we can get basic health information for each member of the family, talk about medication, immunisations etc. and offer advice on accessing the many services that we offer to our patients. If you would like to download the form, please click on this link and bring the completed form with you to your health check appointment.



You can also Order Repeat Prescriptions, book, view and amend appointments, view elements of your coded medical record such as immunisations, allergies, results from samples sent for investigation, blood pressures, peak flow readings, problems and diagnosis through a clinical system Emis-Patient.co.uk.
To register for the service you will need to complete an application form, provide photograph identification and proof of address. You can do this by either clicking on the link below which will allow you to book one appointment and then a block will be placed on your records until the identification is shown at the Surgery, or go along to the Surgery in person and complete the necessary paperwork and receive your password.
