HOW TO REGISTER

Welcome to Nutwood Medical Practice

We are pleased to accept registration requests from patients who are living within our practice area, which covers Grange-over-Sands and the surrounding area - as far as Witherslack in the north, Newby Bridge in the west and Meathop in the east. 

 

New Patient Registration

If you live within the practice boundary you can either visit the practice and collect a registration pack or to speed things up please print out and complete the Registration Form and New Patient Questionnaire  and bring them to the Practice. For those up to 16 years, please complete the Under 16 Questionnaire.

Please also read the Summary Care Record information and if you do not wish to have a Summary Care Record created you should complete and sign the opt out form and hand it in with your registration forms, otherwise a Summary Care Record will automatically be created for you. If you change your mind at a later date, please let us know and we can update our records.

Registering for Patient Access will enable you to order your repeat prescriptions online, access your medical record online and make and cancel appointments with our nurses and health care assistants.  To find out more about Patient Access click here and if you would like to register for this service, please ask at Reception. Please note you can use Patient Access to book appointments with our practice nurses and health care assistants but not with our GPs. We encourage you to contact us online using AskmyGP for any problems that need a doctor's help.

 

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.

Temporary residents

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 treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days for a short stay, or for up to three months if you are staying in the area for longer. 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.

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.
