2) Registration Forms
Complete BOTH the New Patient Registration (GMS1) and the New Patient Questionnaire forms online below in as much detail as you can (alternatively pick up our registration packs from the reception desks at both Kegworth and Gotham surgeries).
3) Identification Check
After completing the paperwork, if over 18 years old, please attend the surgery, bringing along photo ID and proof of address (please allow 3 working days)
4) Medical Records
Once you have been accepted as a new patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice (which may take several weeks). For this reason please ensure any regular medications are detailed in the Patient Questionnaire Form.
5) Appointment Booking
We ask that you allow 48 hours, where possible, before requesting an appointment to allow time for your details to be added.
6) Online Services
Ensure you register for online services for an alternative way to book/ cancel appointments, request repeat prescriptions, nominate a pharmacy amongst a vast array of additional services.
1) 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.
2) After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
3) 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.
4) After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
5) To temporarily register, complete the Temporary Registration Form (online/ in practice) and bring it to reception with photo identification.
6) You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
