To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
Named Accountable GP
From the 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients.
The contract requires the named accountable GP to serve as a central point of contact for the co-ordination of all appropriate services, working with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient.
Please be assured, having a named GP does not mean that you are restricted to seeing only one doctor. You are always welcome to see any GP in the practice, availability permitting.
If you would like to know who your named, accountable GP is, please enquire at your next routine visit.
Where possible the registered GP is the named GP, however we may be able to accommodate reasonable requests to change named GP’s. Please enquire at your next routine visit.
Shared Patient Lists
Whilst you will be registered with Bartlett Group Practice and allocated an individual doctor, we operate a ‘shared list’ system, which means that you are free to book an appointment with any of our doctors. For continuity of care, we encourage our patients to see the same Doctor wherever possible. Please be aware that doctors can work at either site.
What you need in order to register and see a doctor
You and all the members of your family will need to complete a new patient registration form and complete a health questionnaire form. You will also need to provide proof of your address (e.g. a recent utility bill or bank statement) AND photo proof of identity (e.g. Passport, Driving Licence, National Identity Card).
Registration forms and Online Access application forms can be picked up in advance from the main reception desk or you can download them, complete and bring in to reception with your identification documents. To avoid patients coming to the surgery unecessarily during COVID you can email your completed forms and pictures of your ID if you wish, to firstname.lastname@example.org (Please be aware that sending documents via the internet may mean your personal information is unsecure.)

Temporary Residents and Overseas Visitors
If you are visiting the practice area, because you are on holiday (including overseas visitors) or temporarily living in our catchment area, you may be eligible to register as a ‘Temporary Patient’.
As a temporary patient we will provide you with any ‘immediate and necessary’ treatment that you may require (but not forgotten medication).
Please note that some overseas patients are not eligible for treatment under the NHS in which case you will be required to pay for any consultations and treatment.
Please ask at reception or telephone the surgery for clarification.
