Registration of patients outside practice boundaries
From January 2015 GP Practices throughout England became free to register patients that live outside their defined boundaries. However these new arrangements are voluntary for GP Practices.
The GP Partners at the Arthur Medical Centre have considered this situation and have decided to retain their policy of registering only patients that live within the existing practice boundary. Current limitations on resources and the size of the premises, in association with the era of high workload and demand, have led to the judgement that insufficient capacity exists to expand registrations to out-of-area patients. It is felt that such an expansion would jeopardise the level of service to the immediately local community.
