New Patients

Register as New Patient

In order to receive care from a GP you must register with a practice. To register with us please ask reception for our Registration Pack. This contains some forms which you will need to complete and return to us:

  • a Family Doctor Services registration form (GMS1)
  • a New Patient Health Questionnaire
  • Summary Care Record - Your choice
  • Patient telephone numbers and eMail addresses
  • Children inmmunisations  

Alternatively you may Pre- register by sending the forms and a form of ID to hwmc@nhs.net email. Please ensure you send all the forms.

The pack also contains a copy of our practice leaflet, information about how to register to make appointments and order repeat medication over the internet, and information about the Summary Care Record.

When you register you will need to produce proof of your current address – e.g. telephone, gas or electricity bill addressed to you, or rent agreement etc., and some form of photo ID such as a driving licence or passport. Simply complete the forms and return them to reception. Your registration will normally be confirmed within a week, or sooner if you need to see a GP more quickly.

Once you have registered with us, Primary Care Support England will send us your medical records from your previous GP. Children under 16 need to be registered by their parents.

Named Accountable GP

All patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. Please contact the practice if you wish to know who your named GP is. Patients can see any GP in the practice, and if you have a preference as to which GP is your named GP, we will try to accommodate this.

 

Practice Area

Please click here for a map showing the inner and outer boundaries.

The "inner boundary" practice area (darker purple) is bordered on the west by the River Thames, extends north to just before Marston and the River Cherwell and south to Littelmore, Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys. It includes Cowley, Wood Farm, St. Clements, Iffley and Rose Hill, and extends to the village of Horspath.

Patients can register as new patients within the "inner boundary" (Darker purple) and existing patients who move within the "outer boundary" (lighter purple) which includes Headington, Barton, Sandford and Garsington, may remain registered at the surgery.

Please note, you will need to come into the practice with valid ID in order to complete registration.

Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
