Patients living within the practice area are welcome to register and our reception staff can confirm your eligibility from your postcode. Wherever possible please visit the practice on the following days/times to register as a new patient:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 12-2pm
If you would like on line access (to make appointments, order prescriptions and see part of your medical record) then you will need to bring along the following:
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. New patients are offered a health check and the opportunity to have an HIV blood test with a member of the healthcare team.
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
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.

If you, a family member or friend 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 a 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.

We have the following facilities for our disabled patients:
Broomfield Park Medical Centre follows the newly introduced Accessible Information Standard. This involves identifying, recording and flagging, sharing and meeting the information and communication needs of our patients with a disability or sensory loss. The standard aims to ensure that people who a special communication need receive information that they can access and understand for example in large print, braille or via email. We hope this will increase health outcomes and reduce inequalities for patients who require additional assistance beyond the normal.
Please ensure that if you have any particular communication needs that you let the practice know. We will then do our best to meet those needs thereby allowing you to have equal opportunity to use our services.
As from 5th January 2015 practices in England can consider registering patients that live outside of the practice area where it is practical and clinically appropriate to do so. Patients registered in this way would not be entitled to home visits from the practice.
The partners have decided not to take this option up at the present time until we have received assurances that home visits, and other care, has been appropriately set up.
All patients registered are given a named doctor as part of the registration process. However patients are able to choose any doctor when they need to use the practice services.
