To register at the practice we need to ascertain that you reside within the practice boundary.You will be asked to either bring in your signed medical card or complete a GMS1 form which we have here at the practice.
All new patients will be asked to see a member of the practice nurse team for a simple health check within a month of registering. This enables us to obtain details of your past medical problems and to provide better care.
You are entitled to see a doctor anywhere in the UK if you are away from home and in need of medical help. You can do this simply by asking to see the nearest doctor as a temporary resident.
Named Accountable GP for all patients
Upon registering at Lapal Medical Practice, you will be assigned an Accountable GP. All currently registered patients of all ages also have been allocated an Accountable GP.
This does not mean you will be restricted to seeing that particular GP, merely that one has been allocated overall responsibility for the co-ordination and oversight of your care.
