SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS: - These questions and the patient declaration are optional and your answers will not affect your entitlement to register or receive services from your GP
Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice.
However, if you are not 'ordinarily resident' in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of 'indefinite leave to remain' in the UK.
Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious disease and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are oridinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges. More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet available from your GP practice.
You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment, regardless of advance payment.
The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identiying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contact on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.

For patients aged 65 and over or those with a chronic disease (e.g. asthma or diabetes)
For anyone aged 16 and over we offer online services for appointment booking and repeat prescription ordering. This is the quickest & easiest way to order your medication.
We will need to see 2 forms of ID to be able to register you for online services, preferably 1 photo and 1 with proof of your current address (within 3 months).
Once registered, you will also be able to view your summary record, detailing current medication, allergies and vaccinations.
If you decide not to use online services you will need to bring your prescription request into the surgery as we are unable to accept either telephone or pharmacy requests.
If you are aged 16 or over you can nominate another person (called a ‘proxy’) to have access to your online Services (this is called proxy access). This will allow the nominated person to access your on-line account to book appointments and order prescriptions. You can choose to end this access at any time after it has been granted. ID checks would need to be done on the nominated proxy.
If you would like to nominate a person to have proxy access, please ask at reception for an application form.
