Patient Registration

Regular Patients

Anyone who lives within our practice boundary can register as a patient with Elvington Medical Practice. The Practice has branches in the villages of Elvington, Wheldrake, Dunnington and accepts patients from adjoining villages. If you are new to the area please contact the surgery.

Out of area patients

If you live, or are moving, outside our practice boundary you may still apply to register with the Practice. It is very important that the individual health needs of patients can be safely met by their GP practice and this is not always possible when that is a distance from the patient’s home address. We will assess each registration to determine whether it is clinically and practically appropriate for you to be registered with us.

Patients who live outside of our Practice boundary may not be entitled to receive all the services available to patients within our boundaries, such as home visits. If this is the case we will advise patients prior to completion of their registration of any services we cannot provide them, and how to access them if required.

We can only dispense medication to patients who live more than a mile from a pharmacy. This is a regulatory requirement over which we have no control. If you live within a mile of a pharmacy then we will write your prescription but you must collect your medication from a pharmacy, although this does not need to be the one closest to you.

You can register with the practice by coming to the surgery and filling out the registration forms, or you can download the forms on the right and drop them in or post them to one of the branches. Both of the forms must be completed.

When registering for the first time you will be invited for a new patient check. If you are receiving regular medication you will be invited to an appointment with the GP.

Temporary Patients

Students and temporary residents are welcome and will be asked to fill in a temporary registration form.

When registering as a temporary patient your temporary residence must be within the Practice boundary.

You can collect a temporary resident’s form from any of our three sites.
