Out of Area Registration Scheme
Queens Road Partnership recognises that not all patients wish to register at a surgery close to their home address. Many patients prefer to register closer to their place of work or study. In order to address this demand we are introducing a new form of registration called “Out of Area” (OOA) Registration.
OOA Registration offers the patients all the services usually associated with registration, with one exception: Home Visit. If an OOA Registered patient is unwell and needs to be seen at home, whatever the time of day or night, they can call 111 (urgent) or 999 (emergency) and get the care they needed.
There are some patients who are not suitable for OOA registration. These include any patient who is likely to require input from a specialist team who are geographically located according to their home, not their GP address.
This includes (but not limited to) patient/s services in the following services:
- Pregnant women/ Antenatal services
- Families with children under the age of 16/ Health Visitors and School Nurses
- Patients with serious mental health problems/ Community Mental Health Teams
- Patients or Families with Child Safeguarding needs/ Children’s Social Care
- Patients with Adult Safeguarding needs/ Adult Social Care
- Patients with complex community-based packages of care/ Adult Social Care
The reasons for denying the option of OOA registration to patients in groups such as these is that their health and social care needs are based met through registration close to where they live. It is difficult and impractical for GP’s to coordinate such care remotely with services, with which they do not already have strong professional working relationships.
