Choice of GP Practice

From January 5th 2015 you have the choice to register with any GP practice even if you do not reside in their catchment area. This means that you will be able to register with a practice that is convenient to you, for example near your workplace.

If you do join a practice near work and you fall ill at home, the GP near your work is under no obligation to carry out home visits like a GP in your local area would be.

If you require a home visit, please call 111, who will organise a home visit for you from a GP practice in the area you reside in.
