The Thames Valley Family Health Team works in a voluntary partnership with doctors’ groups or clinics, but doctors still manage their own operations and decide whether or not to take on new patients.

Here are some options to consider:

  • If you’re wondering whether a specific doctor or clinic is taking on new patients, please contact their office directly to ask the question.
  • The London Academy of Medicine occasionally lists doctors accepting new patients —
  • Register with Health Care Connect — a government service that connects patients to doctors or nurse practitioners —
  • College of Physicians and Surgeons’ list of physicians ( — you can find contact info for other physicians in your preferred area and call them to see if they’re accepting patients.
  • Word of mouth … talking to people you know and asking them to ask their family doctor to take you on as a patient.
