Primary Care Networks. As part of new initiative by NHS England we are working together with the other practices in Hatfield to provide additional services to our patients. A clinical pharmacist will be starting soon through this new initiative.
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bills (x2). We also require one form of photographic ID plus your NHS No. You can present to the practice on the following days/times to register: Monday to Friday 12.00 till 2.00pm and Monday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both forms can be found on the above "Registering Online" tab. Please allow 5 days before you come into the surgery with the relevant paperwork required. i.e. utility bill and proof of ID.
All new patients over the age of 35 are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
During the new patient health check you may be offered a routine HIV screening test. We are part of a pilot project offering routine tests to all patients with the aim of improving the rate of detection of HIV in patients without symptoms.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Please read information on the "Registration" tab above before you complete the pre-registration form. This form does not automatically register you with the practice you still have to present in person with the information required which is covered in the "Registration" tab. If you do still wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.

We can only register patients who reside within the indicated area.
