Collection of GP Data NHS Digital released a statement last month regarding the launch of the new system they will be using to collect GP data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service. The statement highlights that NHS Digital will only share data with organisations who have a legal basis and meet strict criteria to use it for local, regional and national planning, policy development, commissioning, public health and research purposes. They have also developed a public advice webpage to explain how and why the data is being used.

New Patient Registration

If you live in the practice area and you would like to become a patient of the practice, you need to fill in a GMS1 form and a registration pack. These are available to download below or can be collected from reception. These need to be brought to reception along with photographic ID for EACH person registering and one proof of address per person aged 18 years and over.  When registering a child you will need to provide proof of name such as the child's Red Book, Medical Card or new baby NHS number & discharge details. Alternatively completed forms and photocopies of ID/proof of address can be emailed to

freshwell.administration@nhs.net

Registration documents

GMS1 form

Adult Registration Pack (16+ years)

Child Registration pack (0-15 years)

Once you have returned the form it will be given to one of the doctors who will sign it agreeing to accept you as a patient. If the doctor refuses to sign the form (The most likely reason for this would be that you do not live in the practice area.) then we will not be able to accept you as a patient of the practice but we will help you with any urgent medical attention you require.

Once you have registered with the practice Primary Care Support England (PCSE) will be informed and your medical records will be requested from your previous GP. Please note that it may take several weeks for us to receive your old medical records.

Please note that you may see any doctor within the practice not just the doctor you are officially registered with.
