You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be seen at Woodview Medical Centre and still remain a patient of your permanent Doctors. After three-months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register at the practice.
To register as a temporary patient please come in to the surgery to complete the registration form. The registration forms need to be completed and entered on to our system BEFORE you will be offered an appointment.

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. When you join the surgery you will be asked if you would like a Summary Care Record.
Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.
Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.
Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP
No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
