Register with The Dove Valley Practice

Our list is open and we would like to invite you to join our practice.

Joining is much more simple than you think.

If you wish to, please complete the relevant forms below and hand or send them in to reception.

This process makes a request for your medical notes, both electronically (if the systems are compatible) and for your paper notes. You do not have to tell your current practice you are leaving - it is all done automatically.

Once you are part of our practice you will need to see either the Health Care Assistant or a Doctor for a new patient health check. It needs to be the doctor if you are on repeat medication as they need to add these to the computer.

Then you are up, running and part of the 'premiership' of Barnsley General Practices!

Out of Area Registration

New arrangements introduced from January 2015 give people greater choice when choosing a GP practice. Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice area, to see if they will be accepted on to the patient list.

The new arrangements mean GP practices now have the option to register patients who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits.

Out of area registration is voluntary for GP practices meaning patients may be refused because they live out of area.

If your application is considered the GP practice will only register you without home visits if it is clinically appropriate and practical in your individual case. To do this we may:

  • Ask you or the practice you are currently registered with questions about your health to help decide whether to register you in this way
  • Ask you questions about why it is practical for you to attend this practice (for example, how many days during the week you would normally be able to attend)

If accepted, you will attend the practice and receive the full range of services provided as normal at the surgery. If you have an urgent care need and the surgery cannot help you at home we may ask you to call NHS 111 and they will put you in touch with a local service (this may be a face to face appointment with a local healthcare professional or a home visit where necessary).

We may decide that it is not in your best interests or practical for you to be registered in this way.

If accepted but your health needs change, we may review your registration to see if it would be more appropriate for you to be registered with a GP practice closer to your home.

This new arrangement only applies to GP practices and patients who live in England. For further information visit the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk)
