Medical treatment is available from the date of registration, however for some high risk medications we will require confirmation from your previous GP surgery as to why these have been prescribed. Our clinicians will need this to ensure they are complying with prescribing guidelines. Please do not be offended if we ask for this information. 

After Registration

Once you are registered we will obtain your computerised medical records from your previous GP Surgery. These will be sent to us electronically however some surgeries will take longer than others to complete the process. It may help if you bring along at the time of registering a summary of your health records from your previous GP. 

Every UK citizen has a Lloyd George paper medical record. This is used in conjunction with your computerised medical record. At the time of registration we will request your Lloyd George folder from your previous GP. Please note that it does take up to a number of months for the Health Authority to collect and provide us with your medical file from your previous surgery. 

You will be offered, at the time of registration, a new patient health check. This is an important appointment as it allows us to become aware of your healthcare needs and any medication that we regularly need to prescribe for you. Please come along to this appointment and allow us to help you. When you do attend for your check up please bring any medications, repeat lists or health information you may have with you.
