Changing name at gp after ao
Hi all. Hope someone can help as a bit worried. Basically the gp surgery rang to say that our recently adopted child has been deleted by the health authority and his nhs number frozen. I was aware of change of nhs number post ao and had even told the surgery about it myself but was met with blank stares and reassured that they dont do that now and we just needed to change his name!
Obviously i knew better but as the birth parents already know our address (we adopted fc) no real security issues so i was happy to go along with that.
Now he has been deleted (dont know what the official term is ) and has no nhs number at all as no new one has been issued!
This is a big problem as he has v complex life threatening disabilities and now we have no gp and no access to medications and vital medical equipment.
They are hoping to re register him without an nhs number tomorrow but the woman who is in the know is not there until tomorrow so they dont even know if they can do that.
So it is fingers crossed for no dramas tonight!!
Anyone got any words of wisdom please?
