From Monday 25th September 2023, Allport Surgery and Sunlight Group Practice will be joining together Saxenda 2021-22 Year 5 GP placement student feedback from the School of Medicine Wirral Foodbank – Cost of Living
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. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so it would help if you could provide proof by way of a recent utility bill.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Please note you will be registered with the practice rather than a specific doctor but you are entitled to express a preference.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
All practices are required to provide their patients (including children) with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.
At Sunlight Group Practice all patients are registered to our Partners. You may of course see any GP in the practice as you currently do and normal booking procedures still apply. Your named GP will be stated on your prescription, or available upon request. If you want to know who your named GP is, please feel free to contact us.
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.
