To register with a practice

Once you have found your nearest GP practice, you can call the practice directly to establish if they accept new patients.

If you live over a certain distance away from a practice, or if it has closed its patient list, the practice may refuse your application. If this happens, you should contact the Business Services Organisation and ask them to put your name on a doctor's list in your area.
