New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. (please see the practice area map opposite). We are unable to accept any out of area registration requests due to the practical and clinical needs of our in area patients.
As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.
To register please bring your completed registration form to the surgery. Where possible please also bring one form of photographic ID (e.g. Passport, Photo-card Driving Licence) and one proof of address (e.g. utility bill no older than 3 months).
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please note that we do not take new patients from Wheatfields (Aldington), New Romney, St Mary in the Marsh & Dymchurch.
Before you download and complete any of our registration forms, please check on our Practice Area map that you are within our catchment area as you will not be accepted.
Please print and complete a registration form for each member of the family along with the relevant new patient information form including children under five if applicable. If you wish to receive text reminders or we can contact you via email also complete this form.
When completed please email the completed forms to the surgery at firstname.lastname@example.org ensuring all information is completed and correct. Check all basic information (Name, DOB, address etc) is entered as all incomplete or incorrectly completed forms will be returned.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you 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 the 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.
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.

Removal Of Patients From Practice List
Hamstreet Surgery aims to provide the best possible healthcare for its patients. However, there may be circumstances when it would be considered reasonable or in the best interest of the patient and practice staff to remove patients from the list.
The purpose of the policy, therefore, is to define the practice guidelines for removal of a patient from the practice list and to ensure that any concerns about removing patients from the list are dealt with fairly. Please click on the link below for more information
