New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Alternatively, you can complete the New Patient Registration form.
We will require identification to include proof of address for each patient registering with Fitzalan Medical Group.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Change of Name and/or Address
To enable us to keep our records up to date, it is very important that you inform us if you change your name and address. Please also include your telephone number. If you move outside our practice area you will have to register with a new practice. To update your details, please complete the Change of Personal Details form.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. For more information, you can download the Patient Guide to GP Services.
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 a period of time.
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. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
