Our Practice List is open to everyone living in Basildon within Post Code area SS16. Applicants who are eligible to receive NHS treatment may register by completing the appropriate registration form available at the reception desk. To facilitate your registration please bring your NHS medical card if available with you. In addition please understand that we are entitled to refuse non-urgent/non-emergency treatment pending your registration. Emergency treatment will be provided irrespective of registration. Patients who are not eligible for or entitled to free NHS treatment will be offered our services at an appropriate fee. Relevant details are available from the reception desk.
As a registered patient you will be offered a preliminary appointment designed to introduce you to our services and to discuss, if you feel it is appropriate, any medical worries or problems you may have. At this visit you will be seen by a clinical member of our team whose function is to collect data about your health and to introduce you to the various facilities available to you. We hope to see all newly registered patients within three months of enrolment. May we request that you complete the brief preliminary visit questionnaire available from reception and bring it with you at the time of your appointment. Please bring a specimen of your own urine when you arrive for new patient screening appointment.
As per NHS registration requirements you will be registered with the Practice not with a particular Doctor. However, you do have a right to express a preference to see any doctor although you may experience a longer wait for an appointment to see a particular doctor.
