If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you.
We have a representative from the Portsmouth Carer's Centre in the practice each week on a Wednesday morning - feel free to drop in to ask any questions you may have - or contact the Carer's centre direct:
The Carers Centre is a community resource dedicated to the support of carers in the city of Portsmouth.
You will need to come to the surgery to complete the registration process - you will need to bring two forms of evidence of identity.
You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take up to 6 weeks for us to recieve your medical records from your previous GP surgery.
PLEASE NOTE :
YOU WILL NOT BE REGISTERED UNTIL YOU HAVE SIGNED THE APPLICATION FORM, AND PROVIDED A MINIMUM OF 2 FORMS OF EVIDENCE OF IDENTITY AND LEGAL RESIDENCE IN THE UK.
(acceptable forms of identity for registration purposes are: Valid Current Passport, Photo Driving Licence, Household Utility Bills, Bank Statements)
Please note that until such time as these documents are provided you will only be seen on a temporary basis and will not be fully registered with the practice.
The map below shows the areas we generally cover. The Postcodes covered are as follows:
PO6, some of PO7, some of PO9
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

We are a one stop shop for carers, offering a variety of support, including emotional support, carers breaks, sitting service, cooking sessions, training, carers groups, support for young carers and adult mental health carers, as well as volunteering opportunities.
We have a wealth of information within the building, and members of staff who have a wide knowledge of services in the local area. Anyone can drop in to the centre during opening hours. Or you can make an appointment if you prefer.
Carers Centre staff and volunteers are regularly present and able to meet you at out-stations throughout the city, which may be closer to your home (GP surgeries, pharmacies, Healthy Living Centre, St Mary's Hospital etc). We have a dedicated team at Queen Alexandra Hospital, so you may ask your nurse or doctor to contact them if you or the person you look after is at the hospital.
If your caring role, work or family commitments don’t allow you to visit us during the week we’d be happy to see you on Saturday, when we're open for Carers Café. Why not come and see us, try our delicious coffee and homemade cakes, and speak to staff and carer volunteers?
In exceptional circumstances, if you are not able to leave your home, we can make a home visit - please contact us to find out more.
There is also a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.
