How to Register with an Alternative Practice - Whitehall Medical Practice (Malling Health) Unfortunately no-one came forward to take on the contract to run the Practice so without any GPs, clinical or practice staff, it will close on Monday, 30 September. All patients have been contacted and have been asked to register at an alternative practice and here is a quick reference guide to help patients transfer to a new practice. What do I need to do now? You will need to register with a new, alternative GP Practice before Monday, 30 September. How do I find an alternative GP practice? All our practices across Shropshire have open lists, which means they can all take new patients who wish to register. You just need to check that you live in a practice’s catchment area and this information should be on the practice’s web site. We have already shared a list of our practices with Whitehall patients, but for quick reference please go to the Shropshire CCG web site www.shropshireccg.nhs.uk
