Registering with Gnosall Surgery


Practice Catchment Area

The practice area is shown with our catchment area marked in blue. Click on the map and enter your postcode to check if you live within our catchment area. If you are unsure, you can also contact reception to confirm.

If you change your name and address or telephone number please inform us as soon as possible. If you move out of the practice area, you will be required to re-register with a more local practice.

How To Register as a Patient

If you live in our practice area and wish to register as a patient at our surgery then we need certain information from you and each member of your family so as to be able to trace your previous medical records.

To register, call into the surgery bringing with you:

  • Your NHS medical cards from your previous NHS doctor.
  • 2 forms of ID, with one being in the form of photographic ID and the second being a proof of address.

I do not have my Medical Card?

If you do not have your medical card, you will need to complete form GMS1, you can do this when you visit, or download a copy from the gov.uk website.

This may arise if you cannot find your cards or if you do not have any e.g. if you have recently arrived in the country. This is less preferable since it may take longer to trace your medical records and you will have to fill in more paper work, so please find your medical cards if you can.

Temporary Residents

The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.

To register you will need to bring your passport and complete our Temporary Resident Registration form which is available from reception, or can be downloaded here.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients

As from 1st April 2015 a new requirement in the GP contract is to allocate ALL patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.

As stated on the BMA website:

The contract requires the named accountable GP to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).

Please note that patients are still free to see ANY GP of their choice. Patients will start to be notified of their accountable GP when they attend the surgery, if you are unsure who your accountable GP is and would like to know please contact the surgery on the main telephone line.
