New Patient Registration
Practice Information Booklet
If you wish to register as a patient you will need to ensure that you are within the Practice catchment area as defined by the stipulated boundaries. If you are unsure whether you are able to register please telephone the Practice, where one of our receptionists will be more than happy to help you. If you are able to register, please come to your surgery of choice and request a registration pack. We will ask you to complete a registration form (GMS1) and in addition to the registration form we will ask you to complete a health questionnaire to assist us with your care before your medical records arrive.
All patients registered at the Practice have a named GP however the Practice operates a service where you are free to choose which GP you see. You are also free to attend either of our surgeries if an appointment is more convenient for you.
We encourage all new patients to attend for a new patient health check with one of our healthcare assistants. The health check will include recording your height, weight and blood pressure. You will be asked to provide a urine sample. This health check provides an opportunity for us to meet and it is important for us because we can identify if you need medical care from us as a new patient.
If you are currently on medication and will require repeat prescriptions, please make an appointment to see a GP too. Your new GP can then authorise the repeat medications before you request it and it will avoid any delays in you being provided with your medications.
Once you are registered, please notify us as soon as possible if any of your personal details change so our records remain accurate.
