How to Register with Uslogo

Newly Registered Patients

To register with the Practice contact Reception who will provide you with the necessary forms and Practice Leaflet. In order that we can establish your current health all newly registered patients should make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a New Patient Health Check and with a Clinician, if on current medication as it normally takes a few weeks for your previous medical record to be forwarded to us.

Named Allocated General Practitioner

All registered patients at Hartington Surgery are registered with Dr Graham L Hurst as their Named Allocated General Practitioner.

Temporary Residents

We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse. They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.

Chaperone Policy

It is the policy of this Practice to respect the privacy, dignity, religious and cultural beliefs of all our patients.

If you feel you would like a trained chaperone to be present during a physical examination by a Doctor or any other Health Care Professional, or if you would prefer to be examined by a Clinician of the same sex as yourself, please let the Clinician or Receptionist know and every effort will be made to comply with your wishes.

Language

Please contact the Practice if you believe yourself or a family member may need the assistance of an interpreter at a consultation. The Practice will endeavour to obtain an interpreter if one is not already available.
