ENHANCED ACCESS PATIENT SURVEY

The GP surgeries in Fleet and Crondall are working together to change the hours and days during which we offer appointments. These changes will affect the availability of appointments during the hours of 0800-1830, so we need your feedback to ensure we deliver appointments at the times that work for you. We would therefore be grateful if you could complete this short survey that will help us plan the changes we need to make.  Data from the survey will be gathered after 1 week.

Medical Referrals for Secondary Care:

With more people on waiting lists for secondary care, patients waiting for medical procedures can help to improve their health and wellbeing ahead of their treatment or operation in order to give themselves the best chance of a swift and successful recovery. The earlier people start working to improve their health the better.

If you are waiting for secondary care treatment, the following advice is available from the Frimley Health and Care ICS website: https://www.frimleyhealthandcare.org.uk/whileyouwait

New Patient Registrations

New patient registrations  
New patients in GU51 and GU52 can register in person with the practice Monday - Friday between 1300-1800. Please avoid other times as this will create a queue at reception and a delay to those arriving for pre-booked appointments.  We will require completion of a Patient Registration Form and Confidential Health Questionnaire to ensure the Practice can fully assist with your health care needs.  Download the registration forms as follows:

  • All adults aged 16 and upwards complete Adult Registration Form - click here
  • All children aged under 16 years of age - click here
  • All new patients regardless of age must complete a GMS1 Form - click here
  • Are you a Carer for a registered patient? Formal Carer Registration Form - click here

Your NHS card is no longer required when you register, however you will need to provide 2 forms of identification such as a driver's licence with photo or passport (photographic evidence, where possible, for an adult) and one that includes your home address such as a recent utility bill. For children, we require the child's birth certificate or passport as ID.

As a new patient, to ensure continuity of any regular medication please provide us with one of the following to prevent delays in repeat prescriptions:

  • Your most recent repeat prescription slip
  • Confirmation letter from your previous surgery
  • Ongoing medication packaging clearly marked with your name and address, and prescription details.

When you register at Richmond Surgery you will be allocated a GP.  Richmond Surgery offers Registered Patient Lists and not Pooled GP Lists. We endeavour to ensure that you can see or speak to your own registered GP when you attend surgery.  There will of course be times when your GP is not available.  In the absence of your Registered GP, the practice has in place an excellent secure patient IT system allowing any of our other GPs/locums to attend to your needs. This is usually done by way of triage, initially telephone consultation, and you will then be asked to attend if required.
