GP Practices

Some GP practices are now offering extended opening hours in the evenings and weekends. Click GP extended hours for a full list and additional appointment times.

Registering with a GP

All patients have the legal right to choose a GP Practice that best suits their needs. Patients are able to compare GP Practices  according to facilities, services, access and performance before they decide and should ask friends, relatives and others they trust for their thoughts and recommendations.

A GP Practice must accept you, unless there are reasonable grounds to refuse you. These must not relate to race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or a medical condition. Should you be refused, the Practice must also give you reasons for its decision in writing.

Since January 2015 all GP Practices in England have been free to register new patients who live outside their Practice boundary area, but it is for a Practice to decide, at the point of registration, whether it is clinically appropriate and practical to register individual patients in that way.

When you have found a Practice you like, you'll have to formally register with them as an NHS patient by completing and submitting a new patient registration. These are available from the Practice.

Once you have completed and returned the form, NHS England will transfer your medical records to your new Practice and write to you to confirm your registration as a patient with that Practice.

Patients who are former members of the armed forces should be issued with a summary of their medical record by Defence Medical Services and this should be passed on to the new GP Practice during the registration process. It is important to note that patients should also make the Practice aware they are an armed forces veteran as, depending on individual circumstances, they may be entitled to specialist care or support. More information on healthcare services for the armed forces community is available here.

GP Practices may refuse to register patients

A GP Practice may refuse to register you because:

• it has no capacity to take on new patients

• it may not be accepting patients that do not live within its Practice boundary

• based on your particular circumstances, it may not be appropriate for you to register with a Practice that is a long way from where you live

You should not be refused registration or appointments just because you don’t have a proof of address or personal identification at hand as this is not considered a reasonable ground to refuse registration. This also applies if you are an asylum seeker, refugee, a homeless patient or an overseas visitor, whether lawfully in the UK or not.

If you fall under one of the above mentioned patient groups, please download one of the ‘How to register with a GP’ patient leaflets from the NHS England website, using one of the links below, and bring it with you when you register with a GP Practice:

Homeless Patients Leaflet

Asylum Seekers and Refugees Leaflet

Gypsy, Traveller and Roma Communities Leaflet
