This form of registration is only available to patients who move out of the practice catchment area.
Information for consideration prior to out of area registration.
- You have requested to register with our Practice as an ‘Out of Area’ patient.
- You live outside the practice boundary and we want to make you aware of what this means for you under this type of registration.
We may decide that it is not in your best interests or practical for you to be registered with us.
The practice is not required to provide you with a home visit
(this includes both doctors and any allied health professionals that are attached to the surgery, e.g. district nurses, community physiotherapists)
If you do require a home visit then you will have to contact the 111 service. They will direct you to the local service that has been established by NHS England for patients who need a home visit. This local service may be a GP practice near to where you live, the local walk-in or urgent care centre, A&E or minor injuries unit.
