Park View Surgery is aware contractually, residents living within our boundary with an existing registration at a local Practice can request to change.
In December 2017 with the increasing demand on our services with winter pressures and the pressures in Secondary Care, the Partners' at Park View Surgery agreed to temporarily halt the transfer of patients between Practices. This difficult decision was taken to help us maintain the standard of care we work hard to deliver at Park View Surgery. The ever increasing demand, lack of resources and complexity of needs is creating pressures in General Practice that, if not carefully managed, creates workload that is unsustainable.
Anyone wishing to register with our Practice will not be refused an application on grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition. The Partners' at Park View Surgery feel at this time, they have reasonable grounds to refuse an application to join our list, if the requester, living within our boundary, has a GP locally.
Please contact the Practice Manager, Mrs Sue Evans on 01539 715555 if you would like to discuss further. It is intended to review this Policy at least quarterly.

GP2GP patient information leaflet
The Health and Social Care Information Centre has produced a GP2GP information leaflet for practices to distribute to their newly registered patients. The leaflet provides information to new patients about the GP2GP process and their electronic health record, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions. Patient can download Transferring your electronic health record.pdf here.
What if I need to see a GP when I'm away from home?
You may register with us as a temporary resident, either short stay (under 15 days), or long stay (over 15 days but under 3 months).
As a temporary resident we do not have access to your medical record to assist with your consultation. For your safety you must complete this form Temporary residents info sheet and a blue form which will be provided on arrival. Give these to the receptionist who will then complete your temporary registration in readiness for your consultation. If repeat medication is required patients should bring this with them to the first consultation.
