We register patients using the online registration process, this is open to all residents in our catchment area.
Due to the current situation, we do not encourage you to attend the practice in person to register with us, but if you want to come in person to register, we will be happy to help you.
It is free to register with us, you do not have to provide photo ID or proof of address, and you do not need to prove your immigration status. Furthermore, if you do not have a permanent address (i.e. a rough sleeper), you can give a temporary address such as a friend’s address or a day centre address.
Please call ahead and check that your postcode is within our catchment area. You do not have to show any ID or proof of address to register. We follow the Safe Surgery Principals; All are welcome, our nationality or immigration status do not affect your right to register here:
To register with us please visit https://www.eastlondonregistergp.nhs.uk, enter your postcode and choose the Boleyn Medical Centre from the selection. You will be asked to fill in a form and submit your personal information so we can register you.
If you do not know your NHS number, you can still register with us, but you can also follow the link to try to find out: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/
Your registration will be processed within 2 working days and you may be invited to attend a New Patient Health Check, the invitation is usually received via text.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
We recommend that new patients with long term conditions or taking medications are seen by a health care professional for a review, so please bring all your medications to your appointment with you.
For more information about registering at GP and services available to you please visit the Doctors of the World website which has translated patient information as well; https://www.doctorsoftheworld.org.uk/translated-health-information/
