How to Join Cedars Medical Centre Ruislip

Accountable / Named GP for All Patients

How to register

Practice Registration Policy
You are welcome to join the practice, provided you live within the practice boundaries. In order to register patients we request 1 proof of a photo ID, 1 proof of your current address and NHS Number to enable instantaneous Medical Records transfer from your previous practice.  

The PGM and BMA guidance confirms the following:

Anyone, regardless of nationality and residential status may register and consult with a GP without charge. A GP practice’s discretion to refuse a patient is limited. Under the terms of their primary medical services contracts, GP practices cannot refuse an application to join its list of NHS patients on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.  Practices can refuse an application to join a practice list if:

  • we have agreed that the practice can close their list to new patients,
  • the patient lives outside the practice boundary ; or
  • the practice has other reasonable grounds

Cedars Medical Centre welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please check with reception to see if your address falls within our catchment area. You are asked to bring proof of address (tenancy agreement, council tax bill, utility bill or bank statement) your NHS number and passport or photo ID for practice to confirm the catchment area. These documents are not a mandatory requirement and you will not be refused registration if you cannot produce them.

Your registration status with us will depend on whether you are a visitor, staying temporarily in the area or are a permanent resident. 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 and are offered a new patient health check with the nurse.
