New Patient Registration: We welcome patients living within the Practice catchment area. To begin the registration process, please bring in proof of address and, where possible, your NHS number. However, before you can start accessing services at the Surgery, you may be required to complete your registration process with a New Patient Health Check. These appointments are with the Practice Nurse and can be booked via Reception. The Reception staff will make it clear, when you speak with them, if you fall into this category. In the remainder of cases a New Patient Health Check will not be necessary and your details should be on our system within two to three working days.
For patients new to the UK we need the date of your entry to the UK. We will also require to see a passport with a current work visa. EU residents on holiday in the UK may be seen as temporary residents if appointments are available. For these patients, we need to see a passport as proof of identity.
Please print out and complete the Patient Profiling Questionnaire and bring it with the rest of your documents when you come to register with us at the Surgery:

EARLY MORNING APPOINTMENTS
For many years now the Randolph Surgery has provided GP and HCA appointments from 7.30am. GP core hours start at 8am so this was something extra we provided to help early-morning commuters. Unfortunately from October we are not going to be able to sustain this service. Reception will continue to open at 7.30am but there will be no GP or HCA appointments before 8am. We are sorry to have to pull this additional service, but were glad to be able to provide it while we could.
All those eligible for a flu jab should be receiving an invitation letter soon. If you don’t receive a letter and believe that you are eligible please do speak with Reception.
Our flu clinics are appointment-only this year and will be run by our Practice Nurse on Monday afternoons right through flu season. Children will be seen in dedicated children-only clinics. Previously we did walk-in clinics on two Saturdays in October but we have listened to feedback from patients and will not be running these this year.
Another important change will be that the GPs will not be giving flu jabs as an add-on to their consultations. Consultations are already very rushed and on safety grounds a decision has been made to keep the flu jabs separate.
Some of you may also be eligible for the pneumococcal vaccine or the shingles vaccine. Please check with the nurse at the time you are having your flu jab.
CQC REPORT PUBLISHED – THE RANDOLPH SURGERY HAS BEEN AWARDED AN OVERALL RATING OF “GOOD”
The Randolph Surgery CQC inspection was undertaken on 3 December 2014. Over a ten-hour period four CQC inspectors analysed the entire workings of the Surgery. The inspectors were looking for evidence that the Practice is (1) safe, (2) effective, (3) caring, (4) responsive, and (5) well-led, and they looked at these areas across six domains:
We were awarded a grading of good for all five categories across all six domains, resulting in an overall grading of GOOD
Thank you to all those patients who made comments and specifically those who took out time to speak with the inspectors.

Friends and Family Test – FFT
From today (1 December 2014) all GPs must be compliant with the new Friends and Family Test (FFT). The FFT is a feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience that can be used to improve services. It is a continuous feedback loop between patients and practices. The FFT on its own does not provide results that can be used to directly compare practices – there are other robust mechanisms for that, such as national GP Patient Survey and outcome measures. However, for each practice it can inform current and prospective patients about the experiences of those who use the practice, and help mark progress over time.
The Randolph Surgery is fully compliant with FFT and we have purchased special software to enable us to collect and collate your feedback as well as report to NHS England and publicise locally.
Please ask at Reception for more information. Some further details are additionally available here
