You can normally only be on the ‘list’ of one GP Practice at a time. For this reason, if you want to be considered for the EAP ‘list’, you will require to tell us who your previous GP was, or where the surgery was which last provided you with medical care.
We can usually find that information for you if you are unsure of the name and address of your last GP. We will make contact with your previous GP to check what treatment you have been receiving.
We cannot provide treatment for you without contacting your previous GP if we feel this is necessary.
