New guide to patient registrations

To keep you up to date with registration processes, we have produced a simple and easy to use Guide to Patient Registrations which is available to download from the PCSE website.
Your practice will also receive a printed copy of the new guide with your usual CitySprint collection/delivery during June.
We hope you find the information useful. The Guide to Patient Registrations covers the following topics:

  • How is patient registration information updated?
  • Overview of the Registrations process
  • Using the High Security setting on your practice clinical system
  • GP Links and GP Codes
  • Confusions and duplicates
  • Tips for smooth patient registrations
  • Common reasons for rejection of patient registrations
  • Guidance on Residential Institute (RI) Codes
  • Requesting the removal of patients from your practice list
  • Process for registering an adopted patient
  • Process for registering a patient gender re-assignment  


Please note:
The new guide will be updated regularly, so please check the ‘Registrations’ page of the PCSE website to ensure you are reading the most up to date guidance.
