Leaving the practice
If you move away from the Practice area you will have to register with a practice in your new area as soon as possible either by contacting the new practice directly or by telephoning Practitioner Services (0845 300 1216)
Removal from the practice
In certain circumstances the Practice will request a patient’s removal from the list. This is a rare occurrence and only happens when the patient/doctor relationship has broken down. This can happen when a patient is abusive or violent towards Practice staff or Doctors or if a patient is misusing the Practice’s services or fails to attend multiple appointments.
A letter informing the patient of the removal and the reason for this will be sent to the patient and also to Practitioner Services. The Practice has to give 7 days notice of a removal and in that time the patient should either register with a different practice or contact Practitioner Services (0845 300 1216) to be assigned to a different practice.
