New Patient Registration
The practice is able to take new patients providing they live in the practice area (see above tab).
To register, complete the appropriate section of your medical card or, complete a registration form obtained from our reception staff. Don’t worry if you have no card, our staff will still register you. In the case of a new baby, bring their NHS number (obtainable from Child Health or the Maternity Ward) or the child’s red book.
Please fill in our new patient health questionnaire (available from our reception staff), Your medical record often takes a considerable time to arrive from your previous doctor and this gives us the opportunity of recording some basic information about you and offering you any immediate care you may need.
You will also need to provide suitable personal identification. Two forms of identification are required; one to prove who you are - this would normally be some form of photo identification, (such as a passport or driving licence); the other, to prove where you live, (this could be a utility bill or a bank statement).
You will be registered with a named GP, this is your registered GP, but you have a right to ask to see a different doctor, if you wish. Please ask at reception if you are unsure which GP you have been allocated.
Please note that consent to contact via mobile phone (phone call or SMS) will be assumed if no other option is marked on the registration form or when the mobile phone number is provided to the practice.
If you are taking any kind of medication, please make an appointment to see your new doctor as soon as possible to ensure you can continue to receive the medication.
We do not exclude patients from the practice on grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin or disability, sexual orientation, religion or religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.
