New Patient Registration
Patients who live in the area and who wish to register with the Practice are asked to complete our Health Questionnaire at the time of registration.
A health professional will check the information provided and, where necessary, patients will be invited to make an appointment for an appropriate check.
Before your registration can be accepted you will need to present 2 forms of identification to reception. One to confirm your personal identity (eg passport) and one to confirm your address (eg utility bill).
Please see below an outline of our boundary, however, if you feel you may live outside of this, please ring to enquire before registering.
Summary Care Record
Please note that from 24th November 2014, Kingswood Health Centre will hold a ‘Summary Care Record’ (SCR) for all our patients. When registering at the surgery you will be asked whether you wish to opt in to this. The SCR is an electronic summary of the key information on your medical records. It provides this information to authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or your GP practice is closed.
These healthcare staff will ask your permission every time they need to look at your Summary Care Record. If they cannot ask you, e.g. because you’re unconscious, healthcare staff may look at your record without asking you. If they have to do this, they will make a note on your record.
