Register as New Patient
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire to help us gather vital information regarding your medical history and any current medications.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
We also ask patients who are on repeat medication(s) to book in for a ROUTINE APPOINTMENT with one of our GP's, as this allows the GP's to safely prescribe medication to the patients and helps us to obtain any relevant medical history before your medical records arrive from your previous doctors, which can sometimes take a few weeks
The practice covers the town of Heanor and Langley Mill and extends to include Eastwood (excluding Newthorpe, Giltbrook and Brinsley), Loscoe, Denby, Waingroves and Codnor, Marlpool, Shipley and Smalley.
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.
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.
