A summary of how to go about registering a patient who has been adopted have been issued for general practices.

Primary Care Support England has a five-step guide for the process to ensure there is continued patient care and also to ensure practice payments are not interrupted.

“When a patient is adopted, they are given a new NHS number and must be registered as a new patient at your practice. All previous medical information relating to the patient needs to be transferred into a newly created medical record,” said PCSE.

The main steps in the process are:

  • the National Back Office sends the patient’s new NHS number and any other amended details to PCSE;
  • PCSE sends the GP practice a deduction notification for the patient and emails the new details for the patient;
  • the GP practice accepts the deduction and registers the patient using the new details but should not update the patient’s original record with their new NHS number;
  • PCSE sends a new patient medical record envelope with the patient’s updated details to the GP practice;
  • the GP practice creates a new patient record using new details, and transfers all previous medical information from the original medical record.

It adds: “Any information relating to the identity or whereabouts of the birth parents should not be included in the new record.”
