Registering with a doctor (GP) under the National Health Service (NHS)

To register with a GP you simply need to visit a surgery during surgery hours and ask to be included on the GP's list of patients. You will be given a short application form to complete. You will then be sent a medical card, which will carry your NHS number. If the GP cannot accept you, try elsewhere or use the NHS local search at http://www.nhs.uk/.

If you are receiving regular treatment/medicine we suggest that you submit these details to your GP. Make sure that you are aware of the surgery hours; ask the receptionist who may then give you a list of surgery hours. You will usually need to make an appointment if you wish to see a GP, however you can ask
for an emergency appointment if you need to see the GP urgently.

Remember to attend your appointment or to cancel/rearrange it if you cannot attend , as doctors often have heavy work schedules and your appointment could be offered to another patient.

If you are seriously ill and cannot visit the surgery then the GP can be called out to see you. The receptionist will tell you what time the GP will visit you.
