Getting a GP

Monday, February 12, 2018 | health&wellbeing

To be seen by a GP you have to register with their practice.
You can get a list of GPs in Wolverhampton from:

Wolverhampton CCG

You can call them for a list on 01902 444878.
Or you can find out where there are GP surgeries near you that are accepting new NHS patients on the NHS website>

A surgery may refuse to accept you as a patient, if you do not live in their area, or if they have closed their list of patients.
Where a surgery does refuse to accept you, they must have reasonable grounds for doing so, which do not relate to race, gender, gender identity, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition, and they have to give you their reasons in writing.

Changing your GP

You have the right to change your Doctor without giving a reason.
However, you may find it difficult to find a new doctor, because many have a full list of patients, and may not be taking on new patients.
You should notify your old surgery when you have registered with a new one. The process is the same as above.
