New Patient Registration
We are currently accepting new patients who live within our practice area which incorporates most of Herne Hill up to Brixton and across to Camberwell and East Dulwich.
When you register with a surgery, the surgery is obliged to be able to visit you at your home address. It is for this reason that Brockwell Park Surgery is not able to accept registrations from outside our catchment area until this has been sorted by NHS England. The surgery appreciates that many patients never request a home visit but we have a legal obligation to provide this to your registered address.
Streets in Practice Area
There are 3 steps in the registration process. Please ensure that you complete all steps.
1 and 2 Patient Registration Questionnaire and GMS1 Form
- Please email us email@example.com to get the patient registration questionnaire and GMS1 form (required by the Lambeth CCG), or call in and pick them up. We need to know your full current address before we give / email you any forms. As it can take a minimum of six weeks for your records to be transferred to us, we ask some important questions about your past medical history as well as data about ethnicity required by the local health authority (NHS South East London) to ensure fair access.
3 Proof of Address
- When you submit the patient registration questionnaire and GMS1 form you need to provide us with recent proof of address (a recent utility bill, council tax form, bank statment, tenancy agreement); this can be scanned and emailed to us together with your two registration forms, or you can bring them in. Please note, a driver's license is not proof of address.
All the forms need to be signed before being given in at reception, sent via fax to 020 8678 5405 or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that the registration process takes 2 working days, so you will not be able to see the doctor or nurse on the day you register.
If you were previously registered with the NHS, we would strongly advise you to write your NHS number on the registration form. If you do not know your NHS number, please contact your previous GP and they should be able to provide you with this. You do not need to inform your old practice that you are leaving, but it may be polite to do this.
Please note that if you move out of our practice area, you will need to register with a new GP in your area.
Also, please try to remember to keep all your contact information with us up-to-date so that we can contact you when necessary.
