Practice catchment area
From 2015, all GP practices in England are free to register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area. Greenwood Surgery IS able to register patients outside our catchment area however this is subject to the following requirements:
1) If you’re an existing patient and move out of the catchment area you will be you will be required to re-register filling in a new patient form. Once the new registration is confirmed the practice is not an under any obligation to perform a home visit but would be triaged in the normal way.
2) If the situation arises where it is no longer clinically appropriate or practical for you to be registered away from home, you may be asked to consider registering with a practice closer to home where your care may be better provided at that time.
