Once You Have Registered With Us As a New Patient
Welcome to Guildhall Surgery.
Now that you are a patient with us we would ask that you visit the surgery at your earliest convenience to use our patient health monitor so that we have up to date blood pressure, pulse, height, weight & BMI measurements on record for you. When you use our health monitor, which can be used as often as you wish any time we are open, you will be provided with a ticket giving you the results and those results will be automatically recorded on your medical records.
If the health monitor indicates that you have had results that require further examination please speak to our receptionists immediately.
Once you are registered with us there will be a period of up to 2 weeks, occasionally longer, before we receive your electronic and any paper medical records which our clinicians must have to enable them to be able fully review your health. This is particularly important in terms of your medication requirements as our clinicians may only be able to prescribe your current medication when they have recieved your medical records and have an understanding of why you are taking the medication therefore it is most important that you have ensured your have left your previous surgery with a sufficient supply of your prescribed medications.
If you are suffering from any chronic health condition that requires regular review once we have that information our processes will ensure that your are contacted at the appropriate time asking you to make an appointment for your review. Our chronic condition review processes are scheduled against our patients 'month of birth' which may mean your reviews with us are to a different schedule to those at your previous surgery.
Otherwise, if you have any health concerns please contact us through our reception and an appointment can be made to see an appropriate clinician.
