From the 1st June 2017 a new patient registration process is being implemented by the Business Services Organisation to comply with the HPSSP of Health Services to persons Not Ordinarily Resident Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015.
This is NOT applicable to any patients who are either transfering their registration permanently to our practice from another Northern Ireland GP Practice OR patients registering as a ‘temporary patient’. Please note only patients who are registered with a GP practice in Northern Ireland can be registered as ‘temporary’
A new Registration Form (HSCR1) has been introduced and must be completed by any new patient from outside Northern Ireland wishing to register for free treatment. This includes patients moving from England, Scotland or Wales to reside in Northern Ireland OR patients who have come from other EEA countries or overseas. This will include someone who was born in Northern Ireland but moved away and has now returned to take up residence again or someone who has never been to Northern Ireland before.
Please be aware we unable to accept an application to register with the practice if supporting documentation is not supplied with the application from LIST 1, LIST 2 and LIST 3.
If you have any queries regarding this process please follow this link to
phone BSO Medical Registrations on 0300555113.
The new application will be available on the above website shortly or can be collected from the 1st June 2017 from the surgery.
