How do I find a GP practice near me

Finding a GP practice

You have the right to choose a GP practice, although for most people this choice is currently limited to a practice near where they live. The GP surgery you choose must accept you unless there are reasonable grounds to refuse you, such as that you live outside the practice boundary; the practice should explain those reasons.

NHS Choices can help you find a GP practice near you.

Changing practice

If you’re not happy with the service at your existing GP surgery, you can change to another practice in the area, in most cases.

When you have selected a practice that meets your needs, you will usually need to fill out and sign a registration form and hand it to the practice. Be prepared to take along details of your previous doctor, your address and the details on your medical card, if you have one.
