Registration letters from NHS England – Pleaserespond if you receive one in the post
The NHS is carrying out work to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Lettersare being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit anychanges which can be made by returning the form in the prepaidenvelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, byfreephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of dateover time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address,then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with importantinformation.
The NHS or your GP Practice may also need to contact you:
- with test results
- to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example
- to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
- to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness
Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHScan be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume thatyou have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practicelist.
