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. Their aim is to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care. The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities
You can download the guide below.
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.

Can I register if I am a Foreign National?
Yes – providing you have an appropriate visa and are eligible for free NHS healthcare. We will ask to see your passport and visa.
Can I see a GP straightaway?
Yes – as soon as you have registered. We do not insist on waiting for your notes. However, it would help the GPs if you could bring a list of your medications and if possible, past medical history.
How long will my notes take to come from my old surgery?
As soon as you have registered, we will request your previous notes. These have to be sent by your previous GP, to the Health Authority who then send them to us. This can take up to 8 weeks. If deemed urgent, then this process can sometimes be fast tracked.
