From January 2015, the Government provided GP practices with the option to register people at their practice who were not living in their practice area. City Road Medical Centre has decided to offer this new service as we believe that many people who commute into the City of London for work find it difficult to access GP services during the working day, which in turn can compromise their health and wellbeing.
We would require potential new patients to complete a pre-registration form prior to having their registration accepted. It is important to note that by registering with the City Road Medical Centre as an out of area patient, requests for home visits would need to be provided by the NHS services near to where an individual lives and would be accessed through ringing NHS 111.
Out of area registration is voluntary for GP practices, meaning patients may be refused because they live out of area.
