JOINING THE PRACTICE

 

Accountable / Named GP for All Patients

All patients registered at South Reading and Shinfield Group Medical Practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.


How to register

If you would like to join the practice you should ideally bring proof of address (Utility Bill etc) and your NHS (National Health Service) number with you when you come to register. You will then be giving a registration form and Patient Questionnaire to complete. After this is returned to the practice you will be given an appointment to see the Health Care Assistant for a New Patient Check, and this would complete the registration process.

Children 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf.

As a patient, you have the right to express preference as to which GP you wish to see. However, if you require an appointment and your preferred GP is not available, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor. If you still wish to see your preferred GP you may have to wait longer.

We would kindly request that applications are submitted by 6pm to enable the registration process to be completed that day. Patients may need to return another day to complete the registration process for applications submitted after this time.


Pre-Registration

Please complete the below 'Registration Form'.  The other two forms you only need to complete if appicable.

Please hand in the completed form(s) to the reception team.  You will be advised to complete a new Patient Health Check through our Surgery Pod. The reception team will be happy to show you how to use it.

You are required to bring in 2 proof of address documents along with you.
