Next Patient Participation Group Meeting
The Next Patient Participation Group Meeting will be held on Saturday 15th August 2015 at 10.15am
( All registered patients Welcome )
The doctors welcome new patients to Lockfield Surgery. If you are interested in registering as a patient with us please apply directly in person at reception where you will need to provide proof of identity and address.
Please Note that if you live further than 3 miles from the surgery you can access all of our medical services but will not be eligible for home visits.
All new patients will require a new patient health check with a practice nurse before they can see a GP with the exception of children under five years old.
When registering with Lockfield Surgery your accountable Gp will be Dr Shadia Abdalla, but you can see any GP's working at the practice.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Please read the Summary Care Record section on the right hand side before registering
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

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 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.
