Yes, you can book in to see a Midland Health GP at any time. We recommend you maintain registration with an NHS GP, but we will hold your records in tandem to ensure effective communication in the event of an emergency.
In the event of an emergency, we may be required to share certain information with emergency healthcare services, however, when you register with us you will be asked your preference as to whether we share information on a regular basis or not. We will not share any confidential medical information without your permission or knowledge.
Each insurance provider is different so it’s important to check this out before you register. Many providers don’t cover primary care GP consultations but will cover tests if needed. For a recommendation, call to speak to a Midland Health representative.
We don’t automatically have access but can ask for records from your GP if it is relevant to your care, and if you give your permission.
