New Patient Registration – Temporary Freeze
The trust restored normal patient registrations from Monday 6th July 2020. However, in light of the marked increase in Covid–19 cases combined with practices actively participating in the Covid–19 Vaccination programme, the trust have decided to re–apply the temporary freeze on the free movement of patients between Practices. This prevent patients moving to different practices within the same area. Patients should remain registered with the GP Practice in the area.
However, if you have moved house and are relocating to a new practice area you have to register with a new GP, a practice cannot refuse your registration. It is a common sense approach to register at a practice which is closest to your house / home to facilitate GP house calls.
