Out Of Area Registration

FAQ

Can I register at Aldborough if I live outside of the Practice boundary?

Yes. Patients whose home addresses are outside of the practice’s normal boundary area can still register at the practice, as an ‘out of area’ registered patient.

How do I register as an ‘out of area’ registered patient?

As an ‘out of area’ registered patient, you are still required to complete our online New Patient Registration form. Alternatively, you can collect the necessary forms from the practice reception.

Once registered, you will still be offered a new patient appointment either with the nurse or doctor where clinically appropriate.

What is the difference between a fully registered patient and an ‘out of area’ registered patient?

The majority of services provided by the practice, outlined in our Patient Charter page, are available to both fully registered patients and ‘out of area’ registered patients. The only difference, is that we are unable to provide in hours urgent medical care, which includes home visits to ‘out of area’ registered patients. In cases where these are deemed clinically appropriate, this service will be provided by an alternative provider, suggested by the NHS East Anglia Area Team who will be responsible for ensuring you receive the care you require. We believe that it would be in your best interest and more practical for you to receive this service nearer to your home address.
