How To Register With A Gp


Any Manchester GP practice should accept you as a patient if you live within their practice boundary, are entitled to NHS treatment and their practice list is not closed. If you are eligible, but not necessarily entitled to NHS treatment (e.g. an overseas visitor), the practice can still register you as an NHS patient, but they do not have to. You do not have to provide ID when registering with a GP, but it is helpful to do so.  It is helpful if you can provide at least one of the documents below when registering with your GP:

  • Passport
  • Birth certificate
  • Biometric residence permit
  • Travel document
  • HC2 certificate
  • ARC card
  • Utility bill

If you are ill and need to see a doctor urgently, your local GP practice must provide immediate and necessary treatment whether you’re registered with them or not.
