Due to the increase of severity of the Coronavirus outbreak, Lancaster Medical Practice is screening ALL appointments booked. It is important that you answer all questions honestly and accurately to ensure we provide you with the correct advice and treatment, and to protect our staff and other patients.
To allow us to screen all our appointments, we have temporarily switched off some of our online booking facilities. These services will resume in due course. Appointments can be made by telephoning the practice.
Please read the guidance below concerning Coronavirus.
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
You will be allocated to a GP that works at a site nearest to your home address unless you have a particular need that makes this inconvenient. Please speak to the Reception staff about this.
You will need to complete a Registration Form (GMS1) and a Medical Questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
If you wish to pre-register, please complete both the on-line Pre-registration Form and Medical Questionnaire. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to email your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the forms to confirm that the details are correct.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
