REGISTER WITH THE PRACTICE
Welcome to Park & St Francis Surgery
We are pleased to accept registration requests from patients who are living within the area indicated on the map below.
Enter your postcode using the search option to see if you live in our catchment area.
Please complete our registration form and the supplementary information form. You will need one piece of photograghic ID and one "proof of address" to complete your registration. It is important to complete all forms in full so that your medical record can be brought up to date immediately. (It can take several weeks for your record to arrive from your previous doctor).
Please contact reception for further information.
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. You can download the guide below.
If you are ill while away from your usual residence, 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 upto 14 days.
For periods greater that 14 days, but less than 3 months, you will need to register as a "temporary" patient, which allows you to retain permanent registration at your normal surgery.
For periods exceeding 3 months you will either need to apply to register as a permanent patient, or re-register as a temporary patient again.
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.
Overseas Visitors & Emergency Treatment for Foreign Visitors
People from abroad are eligible for free treatment on the NHS in the case of an emergency. Broadly, this means that if, in the opinion of the GP, your condition requires emergency treatment you will not be charged for a consultation with the GP. If you require treatment or medication for a pre-existing condition you will be charged a fee, which then should be claimed back via your insurance company.
Please note that these conditions also apply to British nationals living abroad.
