Somerford Grove practice has a specific area within which it registers patients. We also have a slightly wider area where patients who have been registered with us for more than 2 years and have a good attendance record, and no other significant adverse incidents on file (eg, warnings for unacceptable behaviour) can remain registered.
We DO NOT retain patients who move outside that area.
We have a very finite capacity which we cannot exceed without compromising the care of ALL our patients. This is something we are not willing to do.
Please do not ask us to make an exception for you as an individual or family. We pride ourselves on treating our patients equitably and it would be totally unfair on other patients if we made exceptions based on anything other than our patients' addresses.
Please see below a map of our practice area. This area is approved by the PCT and is an integral part of our contract to provide medical services. The inner solid line in the main practice area and the dotted line is our Extended Retention Area.
