Safety and Security Sticky

Boating Resources

Keeping ourselves safe and our homes secure is an issue for boaters, as for people in all walks of life. However, there are certain things that boaters can do as a community to minimise the risk of crime and support each other when a crime does take place.

REMEMBER: If you are a victim of crime, try to warn other boaters in the area. Put a message on the email list or Facebook and, above all, talk to your neighbours!

Registering with a GP

Boating Resources

Boaters sometimes have difficulty registering with a doctor because we can’t provide a home address in the surgery’s catchment area.

http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/doctors/Pages/NHSGPs.aspx

Generally, a surgery is only obligated to take you on if “you live within the catchment area and it is accepting new patients”.

This means that ultimately it is down to the discretion of the practice whether they agree register you as a permanent patient.
