Out of Area Scheme
Registering with a practice further away from home can affect decisions about referrals for hospital tests and treatment, or access to community health services. Speak to the GP or practice staff about your options.
Outer practice boundaries. In 2012, all GP practices were asked to agree an outer practice boundary. Outer practice boundaries are an expansion of a GP’s original catchment area. Whereas in the past you may have had to register with a new GP even after only moving a few streets away, these outer boundaries can be a way to stay registered with your old GP.
You’ll still have to speak with your GP first and, if appropriate, the GP may keep you on the register. For example, a GP may refuse to keep you on the register if you need frequent home visits but don’t live close to the GP practice. If the GP covers a large area and the travel distance to your home is too long to justify regular home visits, then the GP can suggest that you register with a practice closer to your home. However, if the GP decides you can stay registered, then you will continue to receive the full range of services, including clinically necessary home visits.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PATIENTS REGISTERING WITH A GP AND LIVING OUTSIDE THE BOROUGH WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET ACCESS TO COMMUNITY SERVICES.
(For example:- GP HOME VISITS, DISTRICT NURSES HOME VISITS, HEALTH VISITORS AND PHYSIOTHERAPY HOME VISITS etc.)
If you live in one borough and your GP Surgery is another borough; community services will not be located in your catchment area therefore they can refuse to treat your medical needs.

Medication Waste Management
Ordering Repeat Medication
Please only order what you need!
This is to reduce medication wastage and rising NHS costs.
• Check which medicines you need before ordering
• Let us know if you no longer require a medicine or you have stopped taking it
• Unused medicines cannot be re-issued again even if unopened
Talk to your GP, Nurse or Pharmacist if you are worried or need further advice.
Do your bit for your NHS:
Always check your bag of medicines before you leave the pharmacy and give back what you do not need.
Once medicines have left the pharmacy they cannot be recycled.
Do not stockpile medication. If you don’t take a medicine that is prescribed for you, don’t order it.
Do not share your medications with others, this is dangerous and puts others at risk.
Take any unused medicines to your local pharmacy for safe disposal.
The NHS belongs to you, please do not waste medicines.
