We are very sorry but we are currently unable to accept applications from patients to register with us unless you are new to the area and you are not currently registered with another practice in Gosport. This is to help us help you over the winter when GPs are at their busiest.

 

All practices in Gosport offer patient online services, including eConsult. Therefore where patients are struggling to get an appointment; we would encourage the use of these other avenues. Practices are also offering a range of appointment times for routine (pre-booked) and same-day appointments, in the evenings and at weekends.

 

A temporary suspension is however being introduced for patients moving from one practice to another in Gosport to help GP practices stabilise after more than 2,100 patients in the town have transferred between practices which has affected a few of the practices with higher numbers of new registrations than usual.

 

It will remain in place until March 31, 2019 and practices will not be in a position to hold a waiting list of patients wishing to register to help prevent a similar situation arising again in April.

 

Two of the eight Gosport practices have already had to temporarily close their lists because they are struggling to cope with the increase in numbers, which also has a further knock-on effect on the practices near to them.

 

Other practices have raised concerns with the CCG that their services could become unsafe if they have to take on more patients, at a time when the town is already facing major problems of GP recruitment and retention and during the busy winter months.

 

The CCG and local practices are committed to providing safe, high quality services to those living in Gosport and are asking for your help over the winter period to ensure everyone gets the right care at the right time. For further details on our online services please visit the other pages on our website.

To Register with the Practice

Please pick up a registration pack from reception.

When returning the completed forms you will need to bring two forms of identification which clearly shows your current address, such as a bank statement or utility bill.

 When you register it will take a few weeks before your medical information can be forwarded to us. In the interest of accuracy and safety we ask that you give us as much information as you can on the form provided by the surgery and that you make an appointment with the health care support worker for a new patient check, all adult patients are required to have this health check. You will not be registered until you have attended this appointment.

  If you would like letters or information/future communications in an alternative format, eg large print or easy read, or if you need help with communicating with us, eg because you use British Sign Language or need an interpreter, please let us know. You can call us on the number above or email us at fgccg.gosportmedicalcentre@nhs.net

You will be registered as a patient of the Practice. You may see any Doctor within the Practice for any of your appointments but if you are receiving ongoing treatment for specific problems we suggest you try to see the same Doctor each time.
