HOW TO JOIN MOATFIELD SURGERY
NEW PATIENT REGISTRATIONS
Please be advised that following consultation with Horsham and Mid Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (HMS CCG) and neighbouring practices, the Partners have reached the difficult decision to cap our list, meaning we will no longer be registering new patients to the area.
We have taken this decision in order to continue to provide a safe, effective service to our patients and to control our workload particularly given the difficulties in recruitment of new GPs. Our patient list size currently stands at over 15,000 patients.
We will keep the situation under constant review and will once again open to new registrations when the patient list size has settled to a more manageable level.
New patients to the area are advised to call HMS CCG on 01293 600300 ext. 3228 or 3597
Moatfield Surgery operates within its published boundary and does not accept patients who reside outside this defined area. Patients should note that if your address is outside of this area you will be asked to register with another surgery. Please see our boundary area below.
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
Since 2004, patients are registered with the practice not a specific GP. All patients registered at the surgery have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
How to register
To register as a patient you will need to be ordinarily resident within the practice area. New patient registration documentation is available above to download but must be received signed. Online submission will be regarded as pre-registration only. A hardcopy pack is available from our Reception desk, including information on what the practice requires.
Patients should bear in mind that the registration process may take several days to complete, to ensure that all agencies are informed. Please allow sufficient time before making an appointment for your medical notes to reach the practice from your previous surgery. This is for your own safety so our clinical team knows your medical history when discussing matters with you.
Patients have a responsibility to inform the practice of any changes of your personal details so our records are accurate and up to date for you. If you have moved to a new address it is particularly important that you inform the practice as soon as is practical, as the new address may no longer fall within the area the practice serves.
Patients may have to register with another practice and we will write to you and inform you accordingly. If you do not respond to our notification your registration may be removed from our practice list. Details of practices in your area of residency can be found on the NHS Choices website.
When you arrive at the surgery for your appointment you can check in, in one of two ways:
- Using our touch-screen self check-in system
- By reporting to the reception
Our simple touch-screen self check-in system enables patients to book themselves in without having to go to reception and helps to keep queues to a minimum, so please use it whenever possible. If you need help please speak to the receptionist.
