New Patient Registration
We always welcome new patients and please see our surgery boundaries to check if you are eligible to register with the practice .However, we can now register patients from anywhere in the Country; this may be subject to patients not having complex or difficult medical conditions where access to a local surgery nearer to home would be safer and more appropriate as we would not be able to offer home visits to patients who live elsewhere. NHS England will provide a service to patients who register away from their home but who may require emergency home visits. Please ask at the surgery if you require further clarification on this issue.
You will need to complete some paperwork to register with the practice which you can either do by calling in or by printing, completing and bringing in the ‘GMS1’ form from the above “Registering Online” tab. Please also complete the New Patient Questionnaire either online or by New Patient Questionnaire
If you call personally, one of our receptionists will take your details and make a New Patient Screening appointment with one of our Nurses. If you post in the form we will contact you to make this appointment.
Could you please ensure that you fill out the New Patient Questionnaire in full as we are unable to activate your registration without these details. Thank you.
When you register with us you will need to bring in photographic identification and a utility bill or bank statement evidencing that you are living at the address you are registering with us.
As a patient, you may express a preference of practitioner to receive services. We will always endeavour to comply with any reasonable preference but if we are unable to do so, we will explain why this is not possible.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance. Neither do we discriminate with regard to disability or medical condition.
As an adult patient you can attend for a routine health check on registering if you choose, with the practice nurse who will check family history, blood pressure, weight and any health concerns. This information will help your new doctor until your records arrive from your previous doctor's surgery which can sometimes take a few weeks to arrive.
