SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS | PATIENT DECLARATION for all patients who are not ordinarily resident in the UK

Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice. However, if you are not 'ordinarily resident' in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of 'indefinite leave to remain' in the UK. Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges. More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice. You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment. The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.


Complete this section if you live in another EEA country, or have moved to the UK to study or retire, or if you live in the UK but work in another EEA member state. Do not complete this section if you have an EHIC issued by the UK. If you are visiting from another EEA country and do not hold a current EHIC (or Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC)/S1, you may be billed for the cost of any treatment received outside the GP practice, including at hospital).

Text Messaging Consent

I would like to receive text messages to these telephone numbers from Richmond Medical Centre. I understand that the content may relate to any aspect of the medical record for the patient listed here only and may include confirmation of an appointment, details of test results, or a reminder alert. Should I wish to withdraw consent I accept that I must give at least 5 working days in writing quoting the mobile number below. I will advise the practice if I change my mobile number and understand that a new consent form is required. I am aware that the NHS mail messaging service utilises the public telephone network and as such full security is not guaranteed. Richmond Medical Centre NHS net email address will appear at the bottom of each text.

Patient Contact Waiver and Appointment System Acceptance

Routine appointments with a doctor may be booked up to two weeks in advance only. If you need an urgent appointment you may be offered a same day appointment with the duty doctor. At particularly busy times your appointment may not be on time. In accordance with the Data Protection Act there is a requirement that Practice staff, when required to contact a patient on medical matters relating to the patient, can only speak to the person concerned. If anyone other than the patient answers the phone the member of staff cannot reveal who is calling. This undoubtedly causes frustration not just from a staff perspective but also delays the passing of any messages to the patient in question. This is particularly so in the case of communicating results.
