Out of Area Patients
Since January 5 2015, all GP practices in England have been free to register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area.
This means you can register with a GP practice somewhere that's more convenient for you, such as a practice near your work or closer to your children’s schools. This will give you greater choice and aims to improve the quality of access to GP services.
You may wish to join a GP near work or re-register with your old GP following a move. The new arrangements make this possible.
Out of Area Patients will benefit from all of the services provided by Riverside Surgery apart from Home Visits and Medication Deliveries.
Home Visits - Call NHS 111 who will advise and arrange a home visit for you.
Medication Deliveries - After submitting a repeat prescription the prescription will be ready to collect after 2 working days.
