Register as New Patient
PATIENT LIST CAPPED AT COACHMANS MEDICAL PRACTICE
Coachmans Medical Practice has experienced a shortage of GP’s over the past three months, which has put tremendous pressure on the Practice. We therefore regret that we are not currently able to register NHS Patients.
Unfortunately, we have reached the point where we do not have the staff or the facilities to meet the needs of any more patients. This decision has been taken in order to ensure the Practice can continue to safely provide NHS services to its currently registered patients.
The practice is not able to maintain a waiting list of patients who would like to register in the future, but the decision to accept new patients will be reviewed regularly.
Once we are able to commence accepting NHS registrations, this information will be available at reception and on the practice website.
If you are not currently registered with an NHS General Practitioner locally, and need to see a doctor or a nurse, you can attend the:
CRAWLEY WALK IN CENTRE, CRAWLEY HOSPITAL, WEST GREEN DRIVE, CRAWLEY, RH11 7DH.
OR call NHS 111 / visit https://111.nhs.uk
Alternatively, you will need to contact NHS England who will allocate you to a local surgery:
T: 07425 616 164
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
