Join the practice
Thank you for taking the decision to join our Surgery, where we aim to deliver:
Accessible care, where you are greeted friendly, welcomed professionally and treated respectfully.
Please print off all of the registration pack(s) below, completing it fully prior to arrival at the surgery, alternatively click on link below to register online.
We require the following documentation in order to process your registration:
- NHS GMS1 Form
- New Patient Registration form
- 1 form of photographic ID (Passport, Driving Licence, Identification cards)
- 1 form of address: Utility bill, Council Tax, Tenancy agreement, or Bank statement.
- For children’s registrations only (less than 16 years of age) front page of Red Book – copies of all immunisations to date.
As a practice we can only register children under the age of 16 years, if the parent/guardian is registered or registering here at the same time.
The children need to reside at the same address as the parent/guardian registering them.
In order for us to fully process your registration with our surgery we require all new patients who are taking regular medication to book an appointment with the GP, in order for the surgery to have as much information about your current medical status.
This is due to medical notes taking up to one month to arrive at our surgery from the Health Authority. Please note; if you are a foreign national and this is the first practice you are registering at with in the UK, we may not be in receipt of your medical records at all.
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 for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
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.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they 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.
Pimlico Health @ The Marven is a local doctors, and we are more than happy to serve our local patients and our not so local, we will gladly register patients from the following areas:

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Healthy London Partnership’s London Homeless Health Programme (LHHP) is working to improve the health, and access to health services, for people who are homeless in London.
The numbers of people sleeping rough in London have been increasing steadily over recent years. Wellbeing and health are seriously compromised when you are affected by homelessness. The average age of death for someone who is sleeping rough is just 47, half that of the general population. People who are homeless often have complex co-morbidities and are much less like likely to be registered with a GP and much more likely to use A&E services.
In line with previous research, a recent report from Healthy London Partnership found that access requirements - such as being asked to provide proof of address and ID - were a key barrier to accessing primary care for people who are homeless.
As part of our work, we have produced the ‘My right to access healthcare’ cards to help people experiencing homelessness to register and receive treatment at GP practices in London.
For more information please click on the links below;
The cards can be used to remind GP receptionists and other practice staff of the national patient registration guidance from NHS England. This states that:
- people do not need a fixed address or identification to register or access treatment at a GP practice
- Where necessary, the practice may use the practice’s address to register the patient if they wish
40,000 plastic cards were handed to homeless members of our comminities in shelters, day centres and other organisations across London. An image of the cards is attached, as well as a copy of the guidance. The cards were produced in partnership with Healthwatch and homeless charity Groundswell.
