New Patient Registration
If you live in our practice area and wish to register with us please complete your medical card (if you still have one) and bring it with you to the surgery. We can still register you without your medical card.
We will ask all new patients to provide two forms of identification; preferably one photo ID such as a passport or driving licence and one with proof of address like a recent utility bill (within the last 6 months).
The receptionist will ask you to make an appointment with our practice nurse to have a 'New Patient Check' . This involves a 15 to 20 minute appointment where you will be asked a few questions about your present and past health. This is to make sure your GP has some current background should you need to be seen before your paper/computer notes arrive from your previous surgery. For this reason it is important you attend this appointment.
Your registration with the practice will include being allocated a named GP, and if you have a preference for a specific GP you may request one. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate requests to be allocated to a specific GP`s list as we need to allocate patients equally.
A patient`s named GP will take lead responsibility for that patients overall care at the practice and patients should contact the practice if they wish to know who their named GP is.
Please note: we cannot register anyone who lives outside our practice area - if you are in any doubt please telephone us beforehand.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
