New Patient Registration
Before you start the registration process, click here to use the NHS Primary Care Catchment area tool to find out if your home is in our catchment area.
All you will need is your postcode.
It is the policy of this practice to require certain information from patients before registering them (proof of address, driving licence, bank statement, utility bill). This policy is not to decide whether we will or will not register any patient, but merely to ensure that we have sufficient and correct information to offer you appropriate medical services prior to your medical records arriving from your previous practice.
In some cases your notes can take up to 3 months to reach us and should you need urgent medical treatment during this time we will have enough information from your patient questionnaire to enable us to manage your condition safely.
For children under 5 we require the child’s red book to enable us to photocopy the immunisation status of the child to ensure your child is added to the appropriate recall system.
All patients who are on repeat medication or who have a chronic disease such as diabetes or asthma are advised to have a review with their new GP.
Please be assured that our policy is to enable us to give you the very best medical care and service at all times. All patients, including children will be allocated/informed of their named, accountable GP at the point of registration or at the time of a subsequent interaction with the practice. However if you wish to have this information sooner please contact reception who will be happy to help.
As a way to save time please click here and print off part a of our registration pack. Fill out as much as you can before you come in to have your registration consultation with a helpful member of our team.
Registration Consultation Times
To be entitled to NHS services you are also required to fill out a GMS1 form, this form will be handed to you as part of your consultation or you can download one here.
If you wish to register to use our online services (to make appointments and order repeat medications) you will need to bring photographic I.D. to the reception desk.
If any patient wishes to discuss any part of this policy with the Practice Manager please telephone Debra Perry on 01491 821760.
Do you need Documentation before Registering?
The minimum for a UK resident is proof of address, (driving licence, bank statement, etc.). If you are in any doubt, please call the surgery to clarify what you are required to provide before you come down.
