HOW TO REGISTER
Welcome to Honiton Surgery
We are pleased to accept registration requests from patients who are living within the area indicated in the map below:
Please see our practice boundary and check your postcode is within our catchment area.
**** UNDER 5 YEARS OLD PLEASE COMPLETE GMS1 FORM ONLY ****
Please either download and complete BOTH Family doctor services registration (GMS1) form AND Registration Pack or collect full pack at reception if unable to print and email at home.
ENSURE THIS IS COMPLETED AND SIGNED.
You can either post this through our letter box with copy of photo ID or Email completed forms and copy of ID to email@example.com
You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help if you can provide some form of ID such as a passport, driving licence or birth certificate. It would also be helpful if your adress is not included on your ID to provide any correpsondence that confirms your address such as a utility bill or bank statement.
If you can provide your NHS number this will help with the registration process but is not required. You can find your NHS number on this NHS tool or on any letter or document you have received from the NHS, including prescriptions, test results, and hospital referral or appointment letters. Alternatively if you are currently registered with a GP, you can conact your current practice to help you
If you're homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend's address, a day centre or the GP surgery address.
All new patients are given a named GP at the time of registration. We will try to accommodate your preference for a GP but this may not always be possible.
If you move
If you move your address within the practice area or change your telephone number please let us know so that we can amend your records. If you leave our practice area you may need to register with a doctor in your new practice area. You can remain registered with us but we would be unable to carryout home visits (please ask for details at reception). If you have outstanding hospital appointments it is also advisable that you contact that hospital to advise them of your new address.
PATIENT CONSENT FOR THIRD PARTY ACCESS TO MEDICAL INFORMATION
Please see attached form to complete if you wish to give consent for another person to access your medical records, or for the surgery to share information about you with the person specified.
Visitors to the Practice
If you are visiting the area and require immediate and necessary treatment, you will need to register as a temporary patient. Please contact us on 01404 548544 to arrange an appointment or telephone call with a GP and we will sort out the administration required.
Named accountable GP for all patients
The Honiton Surgery continues to run personal lists and all patients are allocated a ‘usual GP’. All new patients are advised of their usual GP at registration and all other patients are advised opportunistically. If you are unsure of your usual GP please do ask when you next visit the surgery.
