We are proud to be a ‘Safe Surgery’ for everyone in our community.
Everyone in the UK has the right to free care from a GP. If you don’t have proof of ID or address, you can still register.
Immigration status or nationality don’t matter - reception won’t ask for immigration documents and won’t share your information with the Home Office unless serious crime is involved.
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 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.
Your Named GP
You will be allocated a named Doctor who is responsible for your care and will work with our team to ensure you receive the best possible service
WMG and Armed Forces Veterans
We are excited to announce that Worthing Medical Group are an accredited Armed Forces Friendly Practice
The NHS has a duty to deliver a number of health commitments in relation to the Armed Forces community (service personnel – both regular and reserves, their families and veterans). These are set out in the Armed Forces Covenant and the NHS Constitution. The Covenant outlines that the Armed Forces community, including veterans, should face no disadvantage in accessing health services and should receive priority care for military attributable conditions, subject to clinical need.
Worthing Medical Group are now working to better identify and treat veterans. Referring them, where appropriate, to dedicated NHS services which specialise in military related health conditions and veteran specific health services.
A veteran is someone who has served in the British Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) for at least one day.
About 18,000 service people move back into civilian life every year and whilst most of these individuals have similar levels of health to the general population, around 2,000 per year leave on medical grounds. The top reasons for medical discharge are for issues relating to back, knees, mental health and hearing.
Being flagged as a veteran in your NHS medical notes will help ensure you are able to access specific veterans’ health services.
If you are a veteran, please let us know by emailing us using our secure online form with your name, date of birth and your personnel number.
The NHS App
Worthing Medical Group would like to invite you to use The NHS App
Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
