Check out the process of registering with a local General Practitioner (GP) to help you make the most of your new healthcare journey.

Your Local GP: Your gateway to NHS

Your local GP is not only an expert in family medicine, preventative care and health education but also your first point of contact for accessing other NHS services. They play a crucial role in treating patients with multiple and long-term conditions, making them an invaluable resource in your healthcare journey.

Choosing the right GP for you

Finding a GP that best suits your needs is essential. To make an informed decision, consider comparing GP practices based on their facilities, services, accessibility and performance. In addition, you can also ask for recommendations from friends, neighbours and relatives who have experience with local practices.

Registering with a GP: A simple step-by-step process:

Once you've found a GP that meets your needs, follow these steps to register:

  • Obtain the GMS1 form, which is available at your chosen practice or can be downloaded here

  • Fill out the form and submit it to the practice. Remember that some GPs may ask for identity proof, particularly when registering a child

  • After you submit your form, NHS will transfer the medical records to your new practice and send you a confirmation letter containing your NHS number.

Changing GPs: Your right to choose

If you ever need to change GP practices due to relocation, dissatisfaction with your current practice or removal from the patient list, remember that you have the right to do so. Your healthcare journey should be tailored to your needs and finding the right GP is a crucial part of that.

By following this guide, you'll be well on your way to accessing the exceptional healthcare services the NHS provides. So, take the first step today and register with a GP that aligns with your needs and preferences. Your health and well-being are worth it!
