Under 16 Registration

 

Temporary Registration

These are patients whose length of stay is less than 15 days (short stay); or more than 15 days but not exceeding 3 months (long stay), who require immediate and necessary treatment or emergency patients and are not already registered with a GP in Greater London.

Please visit the surgery to collect a temporary registration form.

More information on temporary registration

Immediate & Necessary Treatment is for anyone (including foreign visitors) who is resident in the locality of the surgery for 24 hours or more (up to 15 days), but is not registered with another local GP in London area, who requires urgent medical attention. The GP is then responsible for the treatment of that patient’s urgent condition only, for up to 15 days. The GP does not extend his/her services to provide full medical treatment for such patients. If the patient requires treatment for a longer period of time, or the patient requests more extensive medical care, then it is appropriate to register the patient as a fully registered patient instead.

For Guidance on overseas visitors please please visit the government website for further information.

Emergency Patients: for those who are in the area for less than 24 hours, who require treatment due to an acute episode/accident which requires immediate attention.

 

Named Allocated GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

The named accountable GP is responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate care and services required under the contract and ensures they are delivered to each of those patients where required, on the patient’s behalf.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery or you can telephone reception.

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned, then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.

Patients do not have to see their named GP and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements. However, if their preferred choice of GP is not available, an alternative will be offered.

New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be allocated at point of registration.

All patients registered at The Pembridge Villas Surgery have a named accountable GP.
