How to register

To register with our practice you need to complete a registration pack, this can be collected from the surgery, or downloaded by clicking the following links:

NHS Registration Form GMS1
Practice Booklet -(under review)
Alcohol screening form
Patient questionnaire
Online services form
Carer Referral Form

Please try to avoid visiting or calling to register at our Surgeries 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, more if there are several family members registering at the same time.

You will need to provide two sorts of identification:

  • Photo identification OR a previous medical card
  • A utility bill OR a credit card bill stating your local address.

In the case of a family, one person’s ID will suffice unless the names of the adults are different.

If you need to see a Doctor urgently before you can provide this information you will be registered as a temporary patient.

When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see the Healthcare Assistant for a new patient health check. At this appointment routine health checks (e.g. blood pressure) can be brought up to date and health promotion advice given. There will also be time for you to discuss any health care concerns that you might have.

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.
