New Patient Registration
This practice accepts patients who have moved into, or are living in, our catchment area.
A map of our practice area and boundaries is available for viewing at reception.
To register as a patient you will need to complete a registration pack which is available from reception. You will also need to provide identification (passport, driving licence, visa etc.) and evidence that you permanently live at an address in our practice area for a settled purpose (utility bill, council letter, bank statement etc). It is helpful that any new patient wishing to register permanently has their NHS number available.
Individuals wishing to register with the practice temporarily, whilst away from their permanent UK address will also need to provide full details of their usual doctor and surgery. We may need to contact your usual doctor as part of any treatment we provide you with and will need to forward them details afterwards, to ensure your medical records remain up-to-date.
Please provide us with a daytime contact number in addition to your home telephone number as there may be times we need to make contact with you promptly during opening hours. It is a requirement that any changes in personal details such as name, address, contact telephone numbers etc are communicated to the practice promptly.
All newly registered patients will be invited for a routine assessment by a Health Care Assistant, within the first 6 months of joining the practice.
If you move to an area outside the practice boundary you will need to register with a practice more local to your new address. Travelling distance and time for medical staff to provide home care visits for patients too ill to attend surgery must be kept to a minimum, to ensure as prompt a response as possible in meeting these needs.
