How we use your Healthcare Information

Please try to avoid visiting or calling to register at our Surgery between 08.00 and 10.00 and between 14.00 and 15.00.
These are very busy times for our staff and the registration process can take 10 minutes or more if there are several family members registering at the same time.

You will need to bring your NHS medical number and provide proof of identity such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, photo driving licence or passport, and proof of address, for example a recent utility bill.

You will need to provide two forms of identification:

  • Photo ID (passport or driving license)
  • Proof of your current address (recent utility bill, tenancy agreement, bank statement etc)

If you are registering a Child (15 yrs & under), please complete the Family Doctor Services Registration Form (GMS1) and provide proof of identity i.e. Birth certificate, Passport, Personal Child Health Record (Red Book).
You will also require parent ID as listed above.

If you need to see a Doctor urgently before you can provide this information you will be registered as a temporary patient.
Once you have been accepted as a patient your medical record will be transferred to us. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.

All new patients are allocated a named GP at the time of registration. A named GP is responsible for the patients overall care at the Practice. Having a Named GP does not mean that you are restricted to seeing only one doctor, or that they are the only doctor or clinician at the practice who will provide you with care.
You are always welcome to see any GP or Nurse in the practice, availability permitting.
