New Patient Registration
Patients who live in the area and who wish to register with the Practice are asked to complete our Health Questionnaire at the time of registration.
A health professional will check the information provided and, where necessary, patients will be invited to make an appointment for an appropriate check.
Before your registration can be accepted you will need to present 2 forms of identification to reception. One to confirm your personal identity (eg passport) and one to confirm your address (eg utility bill).
If you feel you may live outside of our practice boundary, please ring to enquire before registering. _______________________________________________________________________________
Summary Care Record
Please note that from 24th November 2014, Kingswood Health Centre will hold a ‘Summary Care Record’ for all our patients, unless express dissent for this has been given – this is an electronic summary of the key information on our patients medical records. It provides this information to authorized healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or your GP practice is closed.
These healthcare staff will ask your permission every time they need to look at your Summary Care Record. If they cannot ask you, e.g. because you’re unconscious, healthcare staff may look at your record without asking you. If they have to do this, they will make a note on your record.
Unless you advise/have advised us otherwise, we will assume that you wish to have one of these records, and you do not need to take any further action.
