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.
