New Patient Registration

If you would like to register with our Practice and live within our Practice area (please contact reception to confirm you live within the practice area first) we would ask you to complete our online registration form which will ask for all your details including who you were previously registered with. Please fully complete this forms and upload a scan of a valid in date UK or EEC passport or a birth certificate. If you are a non UK or EEC national, please bring your passport showing your valid visa.  If you do not present your ID we will not be able to register you.

If you have a preference to see a particular doctor or nurse at the practice, please inform the receptionist. We will do our best to comply with your request.

 

Named GP

All patients registered with Court View Surgery have been allocated a named accountable GP. From 1st April 2015 we are required by the Government, under the terms of the latest GP Contract, to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This is purely an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP. This does not mean that they will be the only GP who will provide care to the patient. Patients are free to choose to see any GP in the Practice in line with current arrangements. If their preferred choice of GP is not available, an alternative will be offered.

The new contract requires the named accountable GP to be responsible for the coordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each patient where required. However, this does not mean that they will be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient. These responsibilities will be carried out within the opening hours of the Practice and do not change the way you currently access care outside these hours. The allocation has been done for all existing patients, and all newly registered patients will be given a named accountable GP on registration.

The names of the GP’s in the practice are:

  • Dr Garth Francis
  • Dr Brian Agble
  • Dr Lola Savage
  • Dr Nausheen Iqbal
  • Dr Gayathri Vasa

If you are aged 75 or over and registered with the Practice before 1st April 2015 you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP by letter – this named accountable GP will remain the same and will not change under the surname arrangements above. Please be aware that you may still see any GP of your choice at the surgery and do not have to see your named accountable GP, nor does this mean that you will only be offered appointments with your named GP.

 

Temporary Registration

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.
