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.
