"Trouble registering with GP surgery"

About: London

(as other),

I called the surgery today to see if I could register. I am new to the area and live a 10 min walk away down the road (4min drive). My address is in Middlesex which is exactly the same as the surgery and I was told to try other surgeries in Ealing (I am new to Alperton and don't know where Ealing is yet- but I would assume its not as close as a surgery with the SAME postcode as my own? ).

I am quite upset as I took a lot of time reading online reviews of different practices close by and I selected this one based on good reviews. Also, if you will not accept new patients living in the area with the postcode then you need to take yourselves off that area on the NHS website. This is where I found the practice details and I did so by using the postcode.

Very upset as it is likely I will have to travel further to any other surgery.
