We welcome new patients who live within our practice area. We are able to take on new patients within our inner practice boundary area and continue to offer our services to those existing patients within the outer boundary and to those who move from the inner to the outer boundary area. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice, newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and if over 40 and/or have repeat medications, are offered a consultation with the doctor.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Out of Area Registrations
Should an existing patient move outside of our inner or outer catchment area and wish to remain registered, our GPs now have the option to keep the patient on as an ‘Out of Area’ patient but without any obligation to provide home visits. This option only applies to existing patients who may be moving out of our area. It does not apply to patients unknown to the practice who wish to register from outside our catchment area.
Out of area registration is voluntary for GP practices meaning patients may be refused because it is considered by their usual GP to be clinically inappropriate or impractical on a case-by-case basis.
If accepted, the patient will attend the practice and receive the full range of services provided as normal at the surgery but will not be eligible to home visits by the GPs of Buckden and Little Paxton surgery. More details are available on request.
