How do I change my GP?

If you want to change your GP, visit the GP surgery you want to join and ask them to register you as a patient.

Do I have to give a reason for wanting to change GP?

No, you don't have to tell your current GP that you want to change. You don't have to tell the new GP surgery why you want to change, either.

You'll need to fill in a registration form. A request will then be made to your current GP for your medical records to be transferred to the new GP surgery.
