GP Services

As health service providers, as well as commissioners, GPs look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems. They also provide health education, offer advice on smoking and diet, run clinics, give vaccinations and carry out simple surgical operations.

You can register with a GP practice of your choice, as long as you live within its catchment area and it is accepting new patients.  When you have found a practice you will have to formally register with it as an NHS patient by submitting a registration form to them which are available from the practice. Parents or guardians can register a baby at a practice by completing and presenting form FP58 which is issued at the same time as a birth certificate.

Your practice should be able to offer you an appointment to see a GP or other healthcare professional quickly if necessary. You can normally see any doctor within your practice. It is important to keep your appointment, or notify the practice if you have to cancel or change it. 

Primary Care Services

Commonly, primary care services provided by GP's focus on the management and treatment of common illnesses and long term conditions. GP's are able to offer advice on a wide range of topics such as: smoking, diet, blood pressure, exercise and vaccinations. GP's are also able to offer some minor surgeries to help prevent a hospital admission.

Varying practice-to-practice, some GP's also offer specialist clinics within opening hours. To find out if a practice runs any of these clinics you sould contact them direct. These include:
