As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire.
You will be asked to provide ID to register with us and please be aware your registration with the practice may take up to 5 working days to process.
If you have submitted your registration request & you find yourself in need of urgent medical attention before the registration process has been completed, please contact reception for advice.
If you have regular medication on a repeat prescription you will need to arrange a telephone consultation with one of our GP's to set this up prior to ordering from us for the first time (it will not automatically transfer from your previous practice).
Please be aware that any previous online access to your medical records, will be re-set to the date of your registration with Trowbridge Health Centre.

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.
Please remember that most GP practices can now arrange telephone consultations, so it would always be preferable to speak to your own GP even if you are away from home. If you need a prescription this can easily be sent electronically to a local pharmacy for you to collect.
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.

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.
