New Patient Registration
We are happy to welcome new patients to our practice. First check if you are in our area (see Practice Area tab).
To register with the practice, simply visit the practice and ask for a Registration Form. You can complete the 'Pre-registration Process' online, but we need to see proof of identity and signature to complete your registration.
Either bring your NHS Medical Card (FP4) with the lower half (new details) completed, or if you cannot find your card, or do not have one, we can give you a registration form (FP1) to complete.
One member can complete the paperwork for the whole family. The form requires only simple information such as old address, new address, old doctor, date of birth. You will need to bring photo-ID (eg driving licence or passport) and proof of your address (eg utility bill or bank statement).
We register everyone with the practice and then assign you to a 'usual doctor'. He or she will try to see you each time you come and will be responsible for any paperwork, prescriptions or certificates you might need.
Seeing your usual doctor routinely will enable you to build up an understanding with him or her, but it may not always be possible. If you need an appointment urgently you may be invited to see the Rapid Access Doctor or nurse, or for more routine matters if your usual GP is away, another doctor in the practice.
Once registered, you will be invited to come in for a new patient consultation which helps us to get to know one another and assists the practice before your notes reach us from your previous practice. At the consultation we will review your past medical history, family medical history, height, weight and blood pressure and discuss with you any current health needs or concerns. The process is usually started by an appointment with one of our healtcare assistants, but if you have complex medical issues or require repeat medication you will be invited to see your doctor.
