Dragon Cottage, Holmer Green is closing on 7th September 2018. Patients of Chiltern House Medical Centre can still be seen at Temple End, High Wycombe, however many patients are choosing to register with Rectory Meadow Surgery. The unexpected timing of this closure and the volume of patients asking to register at Rectory Meadow Surgery will mean it will take longer to process registrations. Please read the following for guidance. Patient Registration as at 31.08.18 We thank you for your understanding and patience.
If you are not currently a patient of the Practice, you live within our practice boundary and you wish to register, you simply need to call into the surgery for a registration pack. Alternatively, please print off the documents below, complete them and bring them to the surgery at your convenience.
We are also required to confirm your registration details. When you return the completed forms to us, please also bring along the following forms of ID: -
- Passport or birth certificate; and
- Driving license or recent utility bill which gives your current address.
We are currently updating our Registration booklet. In the meantime, copies are available from Reception.

Registering with Us if you are Homeless
Named Accountable GP
Once you have successfully registered with the Practice you will be allocated a named, accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for your care. We will advise you who that will be. Whilst you are entitled to consult any of the GPs in the Practice, we would encourage you to remain under the care of your named GP for continuity. We will endeavour to accomodate any preference you have for your named accountable GP. Please let us know if this is the case.
Out of Area Registrations
If you live outside of our Practice Boundary but still wish to register at the Practice, you may still be able to do so.
As an "Out of Area" patient we are not required to provide you with home visits.
You may on occasion, develop an urgent illness or injury at home that means attending the GP surgery as normal would not be appropriate.
If you require a GP, please contact the Practice in the first instance. If we determine you need access to services local to where you live we may ask you to call NHS 111.
In these circumstances, NHS 111 will direct you to the local service that has been established by NHS England for patients such as you. This local service could be a GP practice near to where you live, the local walk-in or urgent care centre, A&E or minor injuries unit.
This local service will then decide if you can attend for an urgent face to face appointment with a healthcare professional or if a home visit is needed which will be based on your individual circumstances.
Based on the above information, if you would still like to register with the Practice as an Out of Area Patient, please complete the registration booklet (both parts) above, and return it to us. We will ask you to sign a letter, indicating that you understand and agree to the restrictive nature of your registration at the Practice.
