Before making an appointment, you must be registered with Gade Surgery. You can register by calling at the practice at any time during normal opening hours. When registering, please provide either your NHS Card or other proof of identity and address in the practice catchment area.
Full eligibility criteria including for overseas visitors can be viewed by following this link. The NHS registration form can be downloaded from here but you will need to attend the surgery with identification documents in order to complete your registration. If you are registering a child aged under 5, please also bring their vaccination record so that a copy may be taken to update our records. You will be asked to fill in a new patient questionnaire which can be downloaded from here or for a child from here. Also as part of our alcohol awareness campaign and what constitutes safe drinking please return our brief alcohol questionnaire which can be found by clicking here
Patients registering with Gade Surgery are allocated to a named doctor who is responsible for their care. You will be encouraged to see your registered doctor for routine consultations but consultations with other doctors would be possible at your request and subject to availability of appointments.
You will be invited to attend a new patient medical with a Practice Nurse.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.
We have a personal list system as we feel that this offers the best service to our patients. However we know this relationship may not always work and that patients not unreasonably want to change doctors. More information about this can be found here.
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. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
