New Hall Surgery
All patients are allocated a named accountable GP within the practice. This means that there is a specific GP who is named on your records and accountable for your care within the practice. However, patients can always express a choice on which GP they would like to see.
Many migrants will come from countries with very different health care systems to the UK.
It will almost certainly be helpful to explain to new patients how the NHS operates and explore with them how this compares to the healthcare system that they've been used to.

When registering, please bring your NHS medical card and birth certificate to the practice and those of any other persons registering with you.
If you do not have a medical card, you will be asked to complete a registration form for each person registering with the practice.
In addition, all patients will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to this one.
If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move. We can provide information about how to find a new practice.
