Patient summary for Knightsbridge- Any advice?

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My fiancé is in the UK and will be needing to schedule the medical any day now. He called Knightsbridge and they explained that he could not book an appointment without a Patient Summary. I know this question has been asked before but I don't have any clear answers. He does NOT have a GP, he's never been to the hospital, he has zero medical history/negative mental health history except maybe childhood appointments but we have no idea where those were or how to access any info. We tried to email Knightsbridge to ask what he should do (they HUNG up on him when he asked on the phone...). Should we book a physical with a local physician just so we can ask them to print out something that says he's a new patient and there are no records? It seems like the only logical option but he has a fear of going to the doctor so I'd like to avoid it if possible, however many things about this process are scary so he will go if need be. Any and all advice or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

Has he lived all his life in the UK?  Was he taken to the doctor as a child, to get his immunizations?  The NHS must have SOME patient records for him.  That is the advantage to a centralized medical system, right?

Yes, all his life in the UK. I don't know anything about the health system, but, it seems like to retrieve any health records from the NHS, it still has to be through a medical office, which he is obviously lacking. He does have immunization records that are paper copies. However, i did find a childhood GP listed, but I'm unsure if one could even find this doctor/his practice nowadays, if they would keep records this long (he's 31) or if Knightsbridge would take such outdated records.

Update: I believe the practice still exists but I don't know if Knightsbridge would take the records if they were still available.

His lived in the U.K. All his life and not once been to the doctors or hospital Lol damn he one of a kind with magnificent health ha!  Why would he Fear something his never done? And if his as healthy as made out because his never had to see his doctor, his file from a child will still come up and it will show his on no medications and stuff now. You cannot avoid it. Knightsbridge will not see him without a patient summary. If that's the doctor he had as a child and didn't move, or use another doctor they will still have him registered. The only time they take you off the system is if you move surgerys. I'm from the U.K. And have had my doctor for 30 years. With not much medical background as I wasn't in and out of the doctors office all my life but I've still been for things like chest infections and stuff lol I'm actually shocked that your fiancé has never been. Healthiest human I've ever come across. My husband refuses to go because his stubborn but even his been lol

Men are stubborn, and yeah, hasn't been to the doctor since childhood. Thank you for your input, do you think that Knightsbridge would care if the summary of info they had on him is super outdated? Also, not sure it's the same place (different name but same address) so I'm going to have to try and contact them.

They just wanna see if his on any medication and stuff. It's just a background check. And if he hasn't been, then his healthy and has nothing to worry about. And his patient summary will be very straightforward. You can't make someone go to the doctors if they don't need too. They will check him over there, and ask him questions about his wellbeing Etc, if he has drug addictions and stuff He will fill out questionnaires about his health, and the doctor looks over them and will talk to him And will tick the boxes next to his answers. "Patient appears to be lying/ patient appears to be telling the truth"  so don't worry. You need him to ring them. They won't disclose any information with you for confidentiality reasons.

Unfortunately I still don't know how to get the record haha, i have no problems with giving it, it's just i do not know how to get the piece of paper from  a GP that he may or may not be registered with from childhood. Or if i can have him go to a random doctor and have them access the information.

They won't give out info to you in his behalf.  He needs to request it.

I am aware, but I do not know if it is the same practice. Or if they would care to print out a summary for someone who hasn't been there in 20 years.

Honestly, it would be 100x easier for him to just make an appointment for a basic well adult physical at a nearby clinic.  He is a big boy, he will survive it.

Thank you, I know he's a big boy, I said he would do this if necessary. The problem is that I am unfamiliar with the UK's medical system and I didn't know if going to a new doctor would help since they wouldn't be able to produce anything besides just saying he's a new patient. This was my question lmao. But thanks for the help anyways, this is likely what he will be doing.

He needs to ring the doctors he is registered with. Or register with a new one. The old doctors have his medical records on file. A random doctor isn't going to be able to say he is fine without accessing his records. So he needs to be registered for them to look at them and print him off a patient summary. Where ever he goes his medical history will follow.

Sorry if I’m repeating anything already posted, it’s late, so not read through everything.

 

He doesn’t need to go to his original childhood doctor. He can join any local NHS GP and they will be able to access his medical records and print him off a healthcare summary. He would likely need to go to a ‘new patient appointment’, where he’d be weighed, asked some questions (do you smoke, how much alcohol do you drink, etc) and have a blood pressure test. That’s it. However, I think for your full records to transfer over, including vaccination history, it can take 2-4 weeks on average.

Thank you, you explained everything clearly and for that I thank you! We realized upon talking to his mother that he does already have a local GP who he did a new patient appointment with a few years ago, and we will be going to their office this week to hopefully be picking up a patient summary!
