MOOR PARK MEDICAL PRACTICE
NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION POLICY
Please note the Practice Registration Policy is the same for any patient who requests to register at the Practice.
To join the practice, we ask that you provide the following documentation for identification. If you are unable to provide the documents listed your details will be passed to the Practice Manager who will then look to authorise registration. Please note that without documentation the registration process can take a little longer as the registration needs to be looked at by the Practice Manager. The Practice Policy is in place and followed for all patients who want to register at the practice.
Please provide the Practice with one form of identification from each list
- ID card for foreign nationals
- Entry clearance docs (stamped)
- Current residence permit (stamped)
- Official tax notification
- Benefits / pensions book (not card)
Proof of Address:
- Utility bills (not mobile phone)
- Official tax (or similar) doc
- Letter from IND/BIA (with stamp)
The Practice ask that the patient also supply the NHS number when they fill in a New Patient Registration Form this is so our computer system matches the patient to the correct record. This step speeds the registration process up and also helps stop any errors and duplication of records. If patients are unable to supply the above paperwork and information the Practice Manager will have to review the application and approve so the process may take a little longer.
Please note that any patients who fail to attend the New Patient Health Check will not be registered. The Practice has a policy on patients not attending pre booked appointments and patients can be removed from the Practice for DNA’s
This policy has been put in place to protect the patients and the practice and the registration process is the same for all patients wishing to register at the Practice. The Practice has the policy in place to help with identity theft as we have had a number of patients who have had problems with two people using the same record.
New Born Babies- To register a new born baby, it is essential that you provide the practice with the NHS number (this can be found in the front of your babies red book) along with a copy of the birth certificate. we ask that New Mums bring the Red Book to the Practice when registering the baby.
