We are pleased to confirm that registrations at Mayflower Medical Centre have re-opened. Registration packs can be picked up from reception.
Please be aware that in order to register with us, you will need to produce two separate forms of ID: -
You will also be asked to register for online patient access, which allows you to view blood test results, repeat prescriptions, online appointments and coded consultations.
Forms are included in the welcome packs / registration information and your ID will be checked when you come into register.
Please note that you will need to continue to request medication from your current practice while your registration is processed, as this will take approximately seven working days.
Mayflower Medical Centre would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners and our four new GPs, without whom we would not be able to re-open our books.
NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION POLICY
NEW PATIENT ACCEPTANCE / REFUSAL
New patients should submit a New Patient Registration Form/Health Questionnaire. The Practice will accept patients onto its list whilst it remains “Open”.
During times when we have temporarily suspended our patient registrations, the Practice will only accept registrations of immediate family members of patients who are already registered and only if such relatives reside permanently at the registered patient’s address. Proof of residence may be required however there is no contractual obligation to request this.
This includes patients who are in the area and wish to register as a temporary patient (Temporary Residents).
We will continue to offer emergency (immediately necessary) treatment to patients when clinically required.
Patients will not be unreasonably refused registration, and “unreasonable” includes refusal based on:
The Practice will however refuse registration if:
The Practice will normally refuse registration (subject to a Partners’ discussion and agreement) if:
The reason for refusal will be in writing and recorded in a permanent record for that purpose. This excludes Temporary Residents, where no record is necessary.
The permanent record will consist of the original GMS1 registration form endorsed with the reason for refusal, together with a copy of the refusal letter, filed in Surname order. Where a GMS1 has not been completed, a “dummy” GMS1 will be prepared and filed.
The record is subject to inspection by NHS England who may require the Practice to justify a refusal to register.
Registering at our practice could not be easier, just collect and complete a registration form (available from reception).
You will also need to provide proof of your address and, if you were not born in the UK, some form of photographic ID.
We will also ask you to complete a short medical questionnaire, this will allow us to record some helpful medical background information about you.
In order for us to register you quickly and efficiently please complete the resistration form and questionnaire clearly and accurately, remembering to include your previous GP details and place of birth. These details help us to trace your medical records.
Although you will be registered with us within around 7 days, it may be several weeks before we obtain your medical records. Your new medical card will be sent out to you automatically.
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
Pre-registration FormWhen you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online medical questionnaire for new patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
We ask all our patients who have access to the internet to sign up to Patient Online https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/account/login?ReturnUrl=%2F. Forms are also available in the registration packs.
