Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Register with the practice

If you wish to register with the practice you will need to come into the surgery to collect the paperwork you are required to complete. Alternatively, you can print off both sets of paperwork by clicking on the links below. You will need to complete the Pre-registration Form, sign it and bring it to the surgery. If you submit the Pre-registration Form electronically rather than printing it, we still require you to come into the surgery to sign the form, and also bring in your completed New Patient Questionnaire. All patients at Trent View Medical Practice have a named GP.

In addition, we also need you to provide proof of identification (preferably photo ID) such as a passport or drivers licence. You will also need to provide proof of your address, such as a recent utility bill.

Summary Care Record - your emergency care summary

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care situations.

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from, and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. This information will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England.

We recommend that you read the links below for more detailed information about the summary care record. You can also get more information by visiting www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or by telephoning the helpline on 0300 123 3020.

New Patient Screening

When you register with the practice you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and to undergo a screening medical with one of our nurses. This will provide us with background information, and details of your past medical history.

From April 2004 patients are no longer registered with a particular GP but with the Practice, however, when making an appointment you can specify which GP you wish to see and we will try and accommodate you if at all possible, however, this may mean your appointment will be outside the 48 hour period.

Policy for overseas visitors

We do charge patients whose main residence is not in the UK. The NHS does have a reciprocal agreement with some countries e.g. those within the European Union. Where there is a reciprocal arrangement, patients may be entitled to get a refund from their country of residence.

We do however charge all overseas visitors for our services whose main residence is not the UK. Please note that not all practices have the same policy. So if you have anyone visiting from overseas and staying with you, it is worth checking with other surgeries, who may not necessarily charge.
