What to expect from your doctor: a guide for patients

Patients receive the best care when they work in partnership with doctors. This guide, produced by the General Medical Council (GMC), explains how you can help to create a partnership with your doctor. Much of it is common sense, but following it should help you get the most out of your time with your doctor. It is based on the standards the GMC sets for doctors in their core guidance Good Medical Practice.

This information can be made available in alternative languages or formats. To request an alternative format, please call the GMC on 0161 923 6602 or email the GMC at publications@gmc-uk.org.

Registering with a GP Practice

A patient does not need to be “ordinarily resident” in the country to be eligible for NHS primary medical care –this only applies to secondary (hospital) care. In effect, therefore, anybody in England may register and consult with a GP without charge.

It is important to note that there is no set length of time that a patient must reside in the country in order to become eligible to receive NHS primary medical care services. Therefore all asylum seekers and refugees, students, people on work visas and those who are homeless, overseas visitors, whether lawfully in the UK or not, are eligible to register with a GP practice even if those visitors are not eligible for secondary care (hospital care) services.

The length of time that a patient is intending to reside in an area dictates whether a patient is registered as a temporary or permanent patient. Patients should be offered the option of registering as a temporary resident if they are resident in the practice area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months.

Further information about registering with a GP Practice can be found here.
