Cross Border

Do you live in England, but see a doctor at a Welsh GP surgery?

Recent changes to the healthcare system in England mean that if you live in England and are registered with a GP practice that is either in Wales or is registered with the NHS in Wales, then the way you are referred to a consultant will be different to how you have been referred in the past.

Visit the NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group page on Cross Border Healthcare for further details.
