Issuing a new smart card requires relevant ID. Please see below the link below to find out what will be accepted as proof of identity.
RA Satellite Sites in Suffolk
There are 2 dedicated Satellite sites in each CCG area. Each will host an RA Agent for a day, on a fortnightly rotation as shown in the table below. The benefits of this is that anyone from that (or any other) CCG area can make an appointment to attend the clinic and new users (subject to the production of the correct ID details) can be issued with a smartcard there and then at the pre-arranged appointment. Also any users who are experiencing smartcard issues can attend to have their smartcard repaired or updated.
The RA clinic hours will be 10-3pm. Below are the locations, days and times of the RA clinics.
To register your requirements, please ensure you contact the RA Service Desk either via the
Self Service Portal https://selfservice.nelcsu.nhs.uk/ or Telephone the RA Service Desk 0300 303 2733
The RA team will then contact you to arrange an appointment at your chosen venue.
