Does anyone know how the child gets their new NHS number and how long it takes? It is awful having to go to GP/pharmacy/ hospital and say their birth names, as its very confusing for our children to hear these names - as they're not their names anymore
New NHS number for adopted children
So long ago I can’t remember but I remember having to chase the health board to get them. Do you have the AO yet? Your GP should allow to register your child as “known as” - that’s what mine did pre AO
Same here - can’t remember how long it took but it seemed a formality as we were advised to use their new names from the start - “known as” - though we never actually said known as so it must’ve been registered in the way Donatella mentioned - and we were involved with health services from the start
