Patient Registration Information
The Practice List is open to everyone living In Pitsea within Post Code areas SS13 plus some areas of SS16. Patients who are eligible to receive N.H.S. treatment may register by completing the appropriate registration form available at the reception desk. To facilitate registration, please bring your N.H.S. medical card, if you have one, to the surgery..
If you do not have an NHS medical card please inform the receptionist when you register.
Pease note that we reserve the right to refuse registration if the Practice has doubts about your N.H.S. care entitlement status, and that the Practice may require further proof of identity.
In addition please understand that the Practice is entitled to refuse non-urgent/non-emergency treatment pending your registration.
Emergency treatment will be provided irrespective of your N.H.S. status.
Patients who are not eligible for or entitled to free N.H.S. treatment will be offered our services at an appropriate fee. Relevant details are available from the reception desk.
As a registered patient you will be offered a preliminary appointment designed to introduce you to our services and to discuss any medical worries or problems you may have. At this visit you will be seen by a clinical member of our team whose function is to collect data about your health and to introduce you to the various facilities available to you. We hope to see all newly registered patients within three months of enrolment. May we request that you complete the brief preliminary visit questionnaire available from reception and bring it with you at the time of your appointment. Please bring a urine specimen when you attend for a new patient screening appointment.
The Practice runs an appointment system of both pre-bookable appointments and appointments bookable on the day. An appointment can be made in person or by telephoning the Surgery during opening hours. When you contact the surgery please ask the receptionist for their name in case you need to contact the surgery further.
As per N.H.S. registration requirements you will be registered with the Practice. However, you do have a right to express a preference to see any doctor.
