Practice Registration Policy

Sunbury Health Centre Group Practice complies with NHS England Patient Registration Standard Operating Principles for Primary Medical Care.

Any individual in England may register with a GP without charge. The length of time or reason for the registration will determine the type of registration at the practice e.g. Permanent, temporary or immediately necessary.

All individuals wishing to register with Sunbury Health Centre Group Practice as a permanent patient will be required to complete a New Patient Registration form.

Individuals will be given the option of registering as temporary or immediately necessary if they are residing in the practice area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months. Individuals will be required to complete a GMS3 form and provide identification. Immediately necessary provision will be for 14 days.

Sunbury Health Centre Group Practice has a practice boundary and anyone wishing to register as a patient needs to reside within the boundary, or for temporary patients, be temporarily resident at an address in the practice area.

Any existing patient who moves to an address outside the practice boundary will be required to register at another practice.

Homeless or individuals with no fixed abode will be able to register with Sunbury Health Centre Group Practice and arrangements will need to be put in place to be able to contact the patient.

Sunbury Health Centre Group Practice does not discriminate in the registering of new patients on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.

Refusal to accept an application to register will not be made without reasonable grounds e.g. the patient lives outside the practice area or the practice list is closed to new patients.
