NHS England - List Maintenance Project
Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes.
Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by Freephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do become out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
We may also need to contact you:
with test results
to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example
to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness.
Please respond to the letter within four weeks of receiving it, so the NHS can be certain about your details. If you do not respond, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
