New Patient Registration
You can register by completing a registration form obtained from Brownhill Surgery. Please note the practice does have a postcode boundary so check with the reception staff for further details.
When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a new patient medical. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date. You will also be asked to provide proof of address and photographic ID to enable us to register you for online access.
We will see family members of registered patients as temporary residents if visiting the area.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
To save time when registering you can print and complete the Family Doctor Services Registration form, then bring with you to the surgery.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your name, address or contact details please let us know as soon as possible so that we can update our records. Alternatively, you can update your own details by clicking 'Change your Contact Details' which can be found on the homepage. If you are receiving treatment at a hospital it may also be a good idea to inform them of any changes so that both our records are consistent when we communicate with them.
Guide to GP Services
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 home 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 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
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.
