Register as a New Patient
To register at Whitewater Health, please come in to either our Hook or Hartley Wintney site, along with ID documents and proof of address. Our receptionists will then provide you with a New Patient Registration Form (GMS1) and a New Patient Questionnaire to complete. This is because it can take us a considerable time to recieve your medical records.
You can now also register online and no ID is required. Please just make sure to complete both forms below (New Patient Registration Form & New Patient Questionnaire) and the practice will process your registration up to two weeks*
You can check if you live in our Practice area opposite.
Please note - the following locations are not in our catchment area:
- South Warnborough
- Western Patrick
- Long Sutton
- Turgis Green
- Hartley Wespall
Also parts of - Old Basing, Upton Grey & Odiham. If in doubt, please use the 'click here' link to check
*please note, if you complete your registration online, but you wish to sign up to online services, you can either download the NHS App and register. Your ID will be requested through the app. If you wish to sign up through Patient Access, you will need to come into the surgery and complete an online registration/consent form, providing ID (photo ID and proof of address). You will then be emailed your registration details in due course.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
