NEW PATIENTS CAN REGISTER FROM 8.30AM UNTIL 5.30PM OR BY APPOINTMENT WITH THE PATIENT SERVICES MANAGER.
We accept applications for registration from those people living within approximately a one-mile radius of the surgery.
From 1st January 2015 we are accepting patients who live outside our immediate catchment area. However, please note that we will not be able to provide home visits so please take this into consideration before registering. We may also not accept your application or ask you to change to a more local GP to your home after your registration should we consider it clinically appropriate. Further details are available from our reception.
If you would like to register with us please see the receptionist, and bring with you your medical card if you have one plus proof of identity and residency. The receptionist will help if you are unsure about the specific requirements. Whilst you will be registering with the East Croydon Medical Centre, you will be able to see any of the doctors available.
We operate a pooled list which means patients are registered with the practice, not a specific GP, but can see any GP within the practice. All medical information is recorded on the computer and all GPs have access to this information. However, patients do have the right to express a preference of doctor and these requests will be accommodated where possible.
You can download the attached New Patient Questionnaire and complete it before attending the surgery. On attendance you will then have to complete a short form (GMS1) and provide the required proof.
Please note there is one form for adults and one form for children under 18 years of age. If you are registering children then it would be helpful if you could produce a record of any immunisations given at the time of registering
There may be a charge to see a GP if you are not eligible for NHS treatment for whatsoever reason.
