You will be asked to complete and sign a registration form. On registering, the receptionist will ask you to make a new patient check appointment with the Health Care Assistant. This is purely voluntary and we would recommed that you do this as your records may not be received by the surgery before your first visit to the doctor, therefore the doctor will have no previous history of you.
There is disabled patient access to the premises.
We have a disabled parking space at the front of the building. If you are over 75 and have not been seen in the last year, or between 16 and 75 and have not been seen in the last 3 years, you may request a consultation with our Health Care Assistant.
If you are a patient over 75 or over 75 and new to the practice you will be given your own named doctor and a letter will be sent to you which explains what will happen.
YOUR NAMED GP
Each and every patient registered with Parbold Practice has a named GP it is a Government initiative that we inform you who your named GP is. Please ask the receptionist when you next contact the practice and they will be only too happy to inform you who your named GP is.
PLEASE NOTE. If the named GP is not the GP you normally see don't worry you can see any doctor of your choice in the practice.
