Important Registration Notes
In particular, if you have been fully registered with a GP in the UK before, we will need your NHS number for section 8. As it says on the form, this is not your National Insurance number. It is a 10-digit long number and does not contain any letters. If you do not know it and do not have any hospital letters etc with it on, your current GP Surgery will be able to help you.
If you are moving within the UK, please ensure that you are also able to give us your previous address, including your postcode. We will need this in order to trace your medical records.
If you have never registered with a GP in the UK before then please ensure that you will be able to provide the full date of entry to the UK.
