New Patient Registration
Anyone living within our practice area is welcome to register with the practice. If you would like to register, please complete the registration and new patient questionnaire forms that are available either from Reception or by printing the forms that are available here (registration), here (adult questionnaire 1) and here (adult questionnaire 2). There is a separate questionnaire for children under 14 yrs which is available here Child Questionnaire
Please hand the completed forms to Reception as soon as you have filled them in - don't wait until you need to see a doctor or nurse as, the sooner we can complete your registration with us, the sooner we will be able to send for your medical records from your previous surgery. At the time you register you can also book a New Patient Health Check if you wish.
Please also provide proof of address and identity if you possibly can. If this is not possible, it would be helpful if you could get someone who is known to us to vouch for you. Acceptable forms of proof of address include: a current (dated within 6 months) tenancy agreement, bank statement, benefit book, council tax Bill or utility bill. Acceptable forms of proof of identity include: Passport, EU national Identity card, photocard driving licence or birth certificate. If you wish to have online access to appointment booking, repeat prescription ordering or your medical record (currently only available for patients aged 16yrs and over), you must provide proof of address and identity. The online access request form is available here (online access) .
You register with the practice rather than with an individual GP. However, all patients are allocated a named GP - you will be advised who this is at the time you register. If you want to know who your named GP is, please contact Reception. The choice of which GP you see is entirely up to you (see the 'Appointments' tab).
If you have been receiving regular prescriptions or medication from your previous doctor, you will need to see a doctor here before we can issue you with any more.
Please note that, for reasons of Patient Confidentiality, we withhold our telephone number when making outgoing calls. If your phone is set up to reject ‘number withheld’ calls, we will not be able to contact you by phone unless you give us an alternative number.
