"Procedure for new patient registration too rigid at The Surgery, Sale"

About: Greater Manchester

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I'm registered at The Surgery, Derbyshire Rd, and when my daughter came back from living abroad to live with me, she wanted to register with the same doctor at the surgery. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to register with the surgery because the only time you can register as a new patient is at the beginning of the month. My daughter works during the day and because of this wasn't able to get to the surgery at that time to register.

She had to register at a different practice in the end, so our so called 'family doctor' isn't really that at all.

The doctors are lovely but you could improve flexibility in taking on new patients.
