Change of Address

Please notify us immediately of any change of address or telephone number. This prevents problems when sending you letters, making hospital appointments or home visiting.

Regulations also allow NHS England, using PCSE, to check your registration, and having written to you, if they do not receive a reply they will remove you from our list as ‘Gone Away’. If you are a student at Brookes, please note that you MUST notify the Medical Centre of your new address, as the University does not pass on that information.
