This policy will be in place from now, and will be reviewed in June 2020.
We have been advised by NHS England not to register patients who are already registered with a gp within Stevenage, especially if have a underling medical condition or are self isolating, These process will be reviewed in June of this year.
We strongly support minimising workload on practices during this level 4 National Emergency. Many services are having to be suspended until the crisis is over.
However there may be a very few reasonable circumstances where this is unavoidable, for example new arrivals to the area, students who have been sent home, someone who has never been registered.
