The practice are unable to accept registrations from patients if the list is currently ‘closed’.

The practice may on other rare occasions refuse to accept registrations but will not do so on grounds that relate to the applicant’s race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.

Out-of-Area Registration (Please note: we are currently not accepting out-of-area applications during the current pandemic).
Patients who reside outside our practice area may request to register. It is at the discretion of the practice whether we accept a patient as an out-of-area registered patient. Each patient will be considered on their individual circumstances.
The practice will not provide home visits or other urgent care to the patient when outside the practice area and the patient cannot reasonably be expected to attend the practice. If such care is needed the patient would need to ring 111 (NHS 111) to arrange this.
The decision on whether to accept an out-of-area registered patient will be based on the following considerations.
Whether there are clinical conditions or care needs which mean registration without the ability to do home visits would compromise clinical care and the patient’s needs would be better met through registration with a practice near to where they live.
There are practical reasons which mean the patient is unlikely to benefit from out-of-area registration with the practice e.g. the patient is not spending frequent periods of time in or near the practice area where they wish to register.
In order to apply to register as an ‘Out-of-Area Registered Patient’ at the Hessle Grange Medical Practice please complete the relevant application form. (The forms are currently unavailable as we are not currently accepting out-of-area applications during the current pandemic).
