Welcome to Hook Surgery
If you live within our practice area, roughly a two mile radius around the practice, you may register as a patient with us. If you are unsure if you fall in our area, please ask at reception or phone us on 020 8397 6361. People staying for less than three months in the area may register as a temporary resident if they are unwell, and then can be seen by one of our doctors or nurses.
To register with us it will help us to obtain your medical records if you bring along your medical card issued to you by your previous doctor. You will also need to fill in a New Patient Questionnaire and an additional GMS1 form, both of which can be downloaded from the tab below.
You will be asked to make an appointment for a New Patient check, so that we can get details of your past illnesses, family history and current medication. We will also check your blood pressure and test your urine, and may order other tests if appropriate. You may be asked to book an NHS Healthcheck instead of a New Patient Check.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice:
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.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.
