New Patient Registration
Anyone who moves to live within our boundary can register with us by calling into the surgery and completing a registration form, as well as a new patient questionnaire. You will need to bring with you photographic proof of ID, such as a passport or photo driving licence, and proof of residence, such as utility bill or tenancy agreement. If you are registering a child under 6 years, please bring their immunisation record (red book). We will then undertake procedures to ensure that your medical records are forwarded from your previous practice. If you are registered with another practice in the area, we will ask you to meet with one of our GP partners prior to registration.
You will be registered with the practice, not a specific doctor. If you have a particular preference of practitioner, please inform reception when you register. This will be recorded but appointments will depend upon availability. Our medical records are computerised so any clinician you see will have full access to your details.
New Patient Health Checks
On registration we will give you a copy of this leaflet and will write to invite you to make an appointment for a health check.
Temporary and Immediately Necessary Patients
Patients who are registered for NHS services elsewhere and are in the area for up to 3 months can be seen as a temporary patient. Those who require immediate attention can be seen as immediately necessary.
