26th April 2018 Registration of new patients
Due to the number of patients who have recently registered with our practice we regret
that the decision has been taken to close our list to new registrations.
In the last few days we have taken on many new patients but in order to continue
to offer a safe level of care and acceptable access to our existing patients we have
unfortunately had to take this action.
We have been granted permission from Nottingham West CCG and NHS England to close
our list and having taken this action we are not permitted to accept any more new
registrations. Neither our Doctors or our staff have any discretion in this so this
is non negotiable. The only permitted exceptions are newborn babies to existing patients
and family moving into the same household as existing patients.
Other practices in the area are still accepting new patients with no limit to numbers.
If you need help to find a new practice or have any other registration query please
contact the Nottingham West CCG Patient Experience Team on 0800 028 3693 (option
2) during office hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
