    SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS QUESTIONS - These questions and the patient declaration are optional and your answers will not affect your entitlement to register or receive services from your GP

    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.

    Please tick one of the following boxes:

    I declare that the information I give on this form is correct and complete. I understand that if it is not correct, appropriate action may be taken against me.

    A parent/guardian should complete the form on behalf of a child under 16.

    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 yes, please enter details from your EHIC or PRC below:

    PRC validity period

    if you have an S1 (e.g. you are retiring to the UK or you have been posted here by your employer for work or you live in the UK but work in another EEA member state). Please give your S1 form to the practice staff.

    How will your EHIC/PRC/S1 data be used? By using your EHIC or PRC for NHS treatment costs your EHIC or PRC data and GP appointment data will be shared with NHS secondary care (hospitals) and NHS Digital solely for the purposes of cost recovery. Your clinical data will not be shared in the cost recovery process.

    Your EHIC, PRC or S1 information will be shared with The Department for Work and Pensions for the purpose of recovering your NHS costs from your home country.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our PPG please provide your details below:

    Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS)

    At Rushden Medical Centre we are encouraging all our patients to sign up to the EPS service. This service helps reduce practice workload and enables a faster and more efficient prescription service. Benefits of EPS include:

    • Patients who opt into this service will no longer be required to pick up printed and signed NHS prescriptions.
    • Your electronic prescription will be sent securely to your nominated pharmacy.
    • You are able to change your nominated pharmacy at any time which may be useful if a prescription is to be collected near to a place of work or whilst on holiday.

    *Please note a limited number of medications cannot be sent to a pharmacy via EPS & therefore still require a printed prescription.

    Local Pharmacies

    Patients can choose a pharmacy that they wish to nominate as their preferred pharmacy for use with the Electronic Prescription Service.

    Over the last few months we have been asking our patients for their feedback.  You may have received the questionnaire and provided the team with encouraging information to help us understand the improvements we need to review to ensure the smooth running of our practice.

    • You raised concerns that the telephone system was not providing an efficient service.

    We installed a 21st Century telephone system, August 2022.  This provides the team with vital data to ensure that our patients are responded too in a timely manner, it offers patients the option to have a call back and also provides a recording of the telephone call.  This has significantly reduced patient call waiting times.

    • We appreciated your comments regarding an additional GP on site

    We have recruited a further GP to provide additional support and reduce waiting times for appointments.

    • Your feedback raised concerns that extra staff were needed in the reception team

    We have recently employed an additional member of the reception team, this will provide further support during our busy call times and we ae currently recruiting for a further 2 members of staff to join our team. 

    • Requests have been made for additional, routine pre-bookable appointments.

    We have reviewed the pre-bookable appointment system and changes have been implemented.  Routine, pre-bookable appointments are released every Monday for the following two weeks. Due to the changes we have made, pre-bookable appointments ae currently in line with the National Standards on appointment waiting times.
