How to register with a GP surgery

Anyone in Wales can register with a GP surgery. It's free to register.

GP surgeries are usually the first contact if you have a health problem. They can treat many conditions and give health advice. They can also refer you to other NHS services.

Registering with a GP under the Mental Capacity Act

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) is designed to protect and empower people over 16 who are unable to make decisions about their care and treatment.

If a person is unable to register with a GP because they cannot make decisions about their care, registration can be done by:

a relative

the main carer

a lasting power of attorney

a person appointed by a court under the Mental Capacity Act.
