New Patient Registration

Registration: how to register with Arch Healthcare

We register patients who are homeless or in temporary accommodation and in the Brighton and Hove area.

We take registrations from people in Brighton and Hove who are:

  • sleeping on the streets
  • sofa surfing
  • in emergency or temporary accommodation
  • travellers

Please note that you do not need to provide ID or proof of address to register with us, or any GP surgery in the UK.

If you would like to register at Arch Healthcare please call into reception for a welcome pack. Alternatively you can download the forms below, print and fill them in, and bring them into reception. Please note all three forms are required for registration. When you visit the surgery to register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.

  1. NHS GP registration form: GP registration form
  2. Arch new Patient form: Patient Registration Questionnaire
  3. Consent and alcohol questionnaire: Consent & Alcohol Form

Once registered, you will be allocated an accountable GP. You have the right to express a preference to see a particular GP. This will be recorded on our clinical system and where possible, you will be allocated appointments with that clinician. You will also be offered a health check when you join the practice for the first time.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.

Your Named GP

As of April 2015, under NHS GP contract, practices were required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children). This follows on from changes in 2014 when all patients aged 75 and over were to be provided with a named GP.

  • This does not mean that the named GP has 24hr responsibility
  • This does not mean that the named GP will be the only clinician who will provide care to that patient.
  • This does not affect your right to see any GP of your choice.

It might not always be possible for patients to see their named GP on the day, although we try to make this happen. Our GPs all have access to and share medical records.

Informing patients of their ‘named GP’

  • If you have a repeat prescription your ‘named GP’ will be the GP whose name is on the prescription.
  • All new patients registering with the practice will be advised of their ‘named GP’ on registration.
  • You may also ask for this information at Reception when visiting the practice.
