New Patient Registration
You can register with the Practice if you live within our practice area (see above tab) and are a permanent UK resident.
Our receptionist will ask you to complete a registration form. If you have your NHS medical card please bring this along. This contains useful information which will enable us to get your medical records to the doctor as quickly as possible.
You will be offered an appointment with a practice nurse for a New Patient Check which is a chance for you to have a health check including blood pressure. If you are already on medication, you can also make an appointment with a doctor to discuss this and set up repeat prescriptions.
You will be registered with a specified doctor but you have the choice of seeing any doctor in the practice.
Change of Details
It is very important we are able to contact you so if you move house or change your name or telephone number please let us know by filling in our change of details form at reception.
Please be aware that we will not take change of details over the phone.
Named Accountable GP
Since 1st April 2015, practices have been required under the GMS contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered at our surgery are allocated to a named GP. Please ask your doctor, or the reception staff, who your named GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.
Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice of your choosing.
