All the following forms must be completed and returned to the surgery in paper form not via e-mail or fax.
If you live outside of our Practice Boundary, it does not mean that you are unable to register with Aldborough Surgery. However, there are additional terms and conditions regarding your registration and the services we provide – for more information please see the leaflet
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice. You will need to register as a temporary resident.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice if you will be in the area for longer.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the surgery. Practices do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

Enhanced Summary Care Record
What is the NHS Care Records Service?
The summary care record will initially consist of basic information from the patient record such as your date of birth and address, details of allergies, current prescriptions and bad reactions to medicines. Then, each time a patient uses an NHS service, more information may be added to it.
In Norfolk the majority 0f patients already have a Summary Care Records created, and these can be accessed – with patient consent – by the NNUH / A&E dept, the Out of Hours Services, 111 and the Ambulance Service.
Adding more information to your Summary Care Record
To enhance your summary care record just ask our reception team or fill in one of the forms at the bottom of the page.
Additional information can be added to your SCR by your GP practice and is a summary of information about your medical history. It can include the following:
Your long term health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart problems or rare medical conditions.
Your relevant medical history – clinical procedures that you have had, why you need a particular medicine, the care you are currently receiving and clinical advice to support your future care.
Your healthcare needs and personal preferences – you may have particular communication needs, a long term condition that needs to be managed in a particular way, or you may have made legal decisions or have preferences about your care that you would like to be known.
Immunisations – details of previous vaccinations, such as tetanus and routine childhood jabs.
Please note: specific sensitive information such as any fertility treatments, sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy terminations or gender reassignment will not be included, unless you specifically ask for any of these items to be included.
How will additional information help me?
Essential details about your healthcare can be very difficult to remember, particularly when you are unwell. Having additional information in your SCR means that when you need healthcare, you will be helped to recall this vital information.
There are already clear benefits for your care from having medication, allergy and adverse reaction information available through your SCR. If you choose to add additional information, this can further increase the quality of your care. Additional information can also empower you if you need some help to communicate your complex care needs.
