We regret to inform you that as from Monday 9th August, Grove Road Surgery will be undertaking a temporary list suspension.
We have had a rapid and continuing increase in the demand for new registrations and the Partners have agreed that continuing to register new patients could potentially jeopardise our ability to provide safe care to those patients already registered at the Practice.
However, we will continue to register:
Newborn or adopted babies of parents already registered at the Practice who are still living within our boundary.
First degree relatives of patients already registered at the Practice who are living at the same address as registered patients and are still living within our boundary.
Patients from some care homes that we look after (details available on request)
We are currently registering new patients with: Our list is currently suspended.
You will need to supply us with proof of ID (any document with your name and address on), we can then take a copy of the original for you when you are attending in person.
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 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.
