How to Register with Us
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.
Once completed, you may:
- post this to the Practice
- hand it in at the Practice
- or send a copy via email to [email protected]
If you require any assistance in completing these forms, please contact a member of the Reception team who will be able to assist.
If you live within the allocated Practice boundary, you will be registered as a ‘Dispensing’ patient. If you do not live within the Practice allocated boundary you may be able to register as an ‘Out of Area’ patient. Dependant upon your location of residency the Practice may, or may not, be able to register you for Dispenerary services.
As part of the registration process, a ‘New Patient Health Check’ will be required.
Named Allocated General Practitioner
All registered patients at Hartington Surgery are registered with Dr Ashley Dawson as their Named Allocated General Practitioner.
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.
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.
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.
