New patient registration

Informal List Size Closure

15.01.2024 – County Practice has put an informal list closure in place with immediate effect.

In line with the policy, we will not register any new patients.

The practice has been discussing the need to reduce the patient list size  over several months. The list size has been growing steadily causing concern.

To enable the Practice to continue to deliver an effective and safe level of service to patients currently registered with us, we have reviewed our Change to Practice List policy and decided to implement an informal list closure.

We have not taken this decision lightly. We have liaised with the Patient Participation Group, the Local Medical Committee, and the Integrated Care Board.

The decision is under constant review and any changes will be communicated via the website.

The following are a list of the patients we will register in line with the policy,

  • Newborn children of current patients
  • Relatives of current patient who has moved in with them for care i.e., end of life.
  • Residents of care homes within our practice area on a fair share basis with our neighbouring practice.
  • Residents of LD homes within our practice are on a fair share basis with our neighbouring practice.
  • University students returning to an address in the area.
  • Boarders at boarding school in the practice area.
