Join the practice
At present we are not open to patients but run an open but capped list.
To ensure that we have a stable and safe list size, we will only take patients that are not registered for GP services but are allocated to us by the Allocations Team, Kent & Medway Clinical Commissioning Group.
Patients that wish to register with a local GP practice need to receive three decline letters from the GP Practices & then contact the Allocations Team on firstname.lastname@example.org
We have the full support of the practice Patient Participation Group.
Brewer Street Surgery has aways given our patients a named registered GP but if you are unsure who your GP is or request a specific GP - please contact the surgery to check your named GP.
Live within boundary area?
To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
You may print off a registration form if you have been accepted to register. You will still have to collect & complete further forms from the practice for full registration.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Your Named GP
The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore to do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.
We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.
You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
