Supplementary Questions

Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice.

However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK.

Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges.

More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available at reception. Alternatively for more information go to

You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment.

The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.

I declare that the information I give on this form is correct and complete. I understand that if it is not correct, appropriate
action may be taken against me.

A parent/guardian should complete the form on behalf of a child under 16.

European Economic Area (EEA) Country

For a list of EEA countries visit:

If you are visiting from another EEA country and do not hold a current EHIC (or Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC))/S1, you may be billed for the cost of any treatment received outside of the GP practice, including at a hospital.

Please enter the details from your EHIC or PRC below.

S1 Form

Please give your S1 form to the practice staff.

How will your EHIC/PRC/S1 data be used?

By using your EHIC or PRC for NHS treatment costs your EHIC or PRC data and GP appointment data will be shared with NHS secondary care (hospitals) and NHS Digital solely for the purposes of cost recovery. Your clinical data will not be shared in the cost recovery process.

Your EHIC, PRC or S1 information will be shared with The Department for Work and Pensions for the purpose of recovering your NHS costs from your home country.


Book appointments and order repeat prescriptions online. 

You can book appointments at the practice, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and view your medical record securely online using Patient Access.

Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. 

The service is open 24/7/365 and can be accessed from your home PC, Tablet or Mobile at or with the Patient Access app for Apple and Android devices.

Before you apply for online access to your record, please consider the following situations:

Forgotten history
There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting.

Choosing to share your information with someone
It’s up to you whether or not you share your information with others – perhaps family members or carers. It’s your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the information safe and secure. Should you share your login credentials, they would be able to book appointments or order repeat prescriptions. They may be able to see your record to help with your healthcare if you wish.

Using your record to complete forms
The information that you can see online may be misleading if you rely on it alone to complete insurance, employment or legal reports or forms.

Important information for patients viewing test results online
If you have been given access to view your test results online these will become available after one of the doctors has viewed and commented on them. Some results arrive in the practice with a comment from the lab of “Abnormal” or will show with a little red marker outside the normal range. It is important to look at the comment of the doctor who has viewed the result rather than this lab marker!

Abnormal results or bad news
With online records access you may see something that you find upsetting. This may occur before you have spoken to your doctor or while the surgery is closed and you cannot contact us. If this happens please contact us as soon as possible. The practice may hide parts of your record so that certain details are not displayed online. For example, we may do this with test results that you might find worrying until we have had an opportunity to discuss the information with you.

If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best that you do not register for access at this time.

Information about someone else
If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other errors, please log out of the system and contact the practice as soon as possible.

If you feel that any information is incorrect or that your record is missing information, we can add amendments to your record, but we cannot delete or alter any historical information.

The marker which says “normal” may not be appropriate for you
In some situations the lab will view a result as normal when it is not correct for you. One example of this would be a patient on treatment for gout. The normal range for the test goes up to a value of 450, but if you are on treatment we target a value of below 300.

The marker which says “abnormal” may not be appropriate for you
The lab marker is based on a sample, if your result is in the same range as 95% of normal tests it will be marked as normal – so 5% of “normal” tests will be marked as abnormal.

Misunderstood information
Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please ask your GP when you next speak to them.
