New Patient Registration
To register in the practice you must live within the practice boundary. You are registered with the practice rather than an individual GP.
The doctors need to obtain correct medical records and in order for these to be traced we will need to know full name, date of birth, current address and previous doctor. This should be supported by producing the following documents:
- An NHS Medical Card and if required a current Passport/Visa valid for a minimum of 6 months.
- Proof of Address (in form of utility bill such as: gas, electric or council tax no more than 3 months old.
On receipt of the above the patient can be fully registered with the surgery, subject to the Practice list being open. An appointment will be issued with the Health Care Assistant to obtain basic medical information and you will be issued with a practice leaflet and policy for ordering medication.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or existing medical conditions.
Disabled patients are able to telephone the Practice from outside on arrival if they require any assistance in accessing the building or its services. Clinical staff will assist patients from the waiting area and escort them to their consultation.
Change of Address
If you change name, address or telephone number, please let our receptionists know by calling or writing to us. If you move outside the practice area you may need to find a doctor in your new area. There are instructions on what to do when you move to a new area on the back of your NHS medical card.
