Pre-Registration with the Practice

If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.

Most patient records are transferred electronically when and may be received in time for your first consultation with a clinician. This helps us to provide joined up healthcare. If your record does NOT transfer electronically it can be some time before we have your records from your previous GP.

Identification Documents

As well as submitting the registration form, please e-mail copies of one of the following photo ID:  driving licence, passport, bus pass, work id pass, college id pass, as well as proof of address within the last three months, i.e. utility bill to:- pendleviewmedicalcentre@nhs.net  Alternatively register with the NHS app https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/ as this will verify your identity and we can accept the confirmation as proof of identity and register you for all on line services.

 

Change of Address

Please let us know as soon as possible if you have a change of address or telephone number. Please note that if you move out of the Practice area you must register with a practice in your new locality.

 You may email us on pendleviewmedicalcentre@nhs.net or write to us, please include your date of birth, full name and previous address, and proof of address where possible.

Out of Area Patients

If we continue to have patients registered outside of our boundary, it makes it difficult to provide care for those patients within the boundary. Whilst we recognise most patients are able to attend surgery and often the residential address is not relevant, we have on a number of occasions experienced issues when providing care for those patients registered outside of our boundary. There is the potential risk of compromising care for yourself and other patients.

Temporary Patient Registrations

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.
