Changes to Patient Registration Requirements

From 2 October 2017, GPs will need to complete all new patient registrations using the new family doctor services registration (GMS1) form. The revised GMS1 form contains the same information as the current GMS1 form, as well as a supplementary questions section for overseas patients. Copies of the new form will be delivered directly to GP practices ahead of the 2 October 2017 date. Should any practice require further forms after that delivery, please order these from the primary care service England portal primary care service England portal. The form can also be downloaded from the NHS Choices website.
