The Devonshire Lodge Practice does not accept ‘out of area’ patients.
Patients currently registered with us who move away will need to register with a new local GP.
New patients wishing to register with the practice must live in our catchment area (see HERE) and complete the application pack (available at reception)
To assist us in locating your previous medical record it would be useful if you have your NHS number.
We would prefer to see a recent (last 3 months) utility bill, bank statement or similar, but there is no legal requirement to do so.
The name on the documents must be the registrant’s name unless you can provide a marriage certificate or deed of change of name.
Your registration status with us will depend on whether you are a visitor, staying temporarily in the area or are a permanent resident.
As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a new patient health check with the nurse.
Further information about the Registration process is available on the NHS website (see HERE)
We are happy to see UK residents who are visiting or temporarily residing with our patients. However we will only be able to deal with their acute problem.
All asylum seekers and refugees, students, people on work visas and those who are homeless, overseas visitors, whether lawfully in the UK or not, are eligible to register with a GP practice even if those visitors are not eligible for secondary care (hospital care) services.
