To Register for an NHS GP in Coventry follow these steps:
You don't need:
If you haven’t registered with a GP in Coventry before, we recommend using the NHS online registration form. It’s important to complete the form accurately to ensure your registration gets accepted.
Once you’ve registered, you will be offered a free new patient health assessment. This allows you to take actions to reduce your risk of developing serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of dementia.
Your new patient health assessment includes a health questionnaire, a check to ensure any repeat medications are up to date, in-person observations (such as measuring your blood pressure, pulse check, and BMI), blood tests (if clinically necessary and you’re aged between 40 and 74), and a consultation with a healthcare assistant to discuss your overall health and wellness.
At the end of your assessment, you’ll receive personalised advice to help you enjoy a healthier life for longer. And if needed, we can also book you in for a follow-up consultation.
You do not need to know your NHS number to register with a GP. Your NHS number is used to help identify your medical records. However, we can still find your records without your NHS number. It’s important to complete the online registration form accurately to prevent delays with your registration.
No, you do not have to pay to register with an NHS GP - anyone who lives in England can register with an NHS GP for free.
