Who am I registered with?
Patients often ask which GP they are registered with. The answer is that you are no longer registered with an individual GP but are registered with "The Practice". This was a change brought in by the government in 2004 and means that "The Practice" signed a contract to provide NHS general medical services (GMS), rather than individual doctors in a practice.

We appreciate that this matter of registration is an entirely confusing situation for patients because whenever they go to a hospital, dentist, optician etc. they are asked "which doctor are you registered with?". We cannot give a reason as to why these providers continue to ask for an individual GP name and would suggest that you give the name of Theatre Royal Surgery. If this is unacceptable to the organisation, give the name of the GP that you see most often or who has referred you to that service.
