Registering with a GP is easy, and it’s important
Your local GP surgery provides a wide range of health services that include advice on health concerns, how to prevent you becoming unwell, vaccinations, examinations and treatment, and prescriptions for medicines. They can also refer you to other health services.
It’s important to register with a GP practice near you so you can receive the care you need if you become unwell.
How to change your gender marker on your medical record
It should be easy to change your gender marker on your medical record. Some practices may require evidence of a name change by deed poll, but you should not need a gender recognition certificate to change your gender. Some GP practices have different procedures, so speak to the team at your GP practice for more information.
If you need further support or experience challenges when trying to change your gender marker, contact Patient Relations.
When you change your gender marker, you might not be automatically called forward for screening appointments. Make sure you know what screening you are eligible for and speak to your GP team about booking an appointment.
