New Patient Registration
Please bring your medical card which the receptionist can help you complete.
If you do not have a medical card, application forms (GMS1), are available online (Registration Form - please print and complete) or from reception. You will also need to provide personal identification; we require two forms of evidence from the following list, at least one of which must include your current or past address.
- Full Driver's Licence
- Birth Certificate
- Marriage Certificate
- Current Benefit book/card
- Current local council rent card
- Utility bill, e.g. gas, electric, water, telephone - not mobile, not more than 3 months' old
- Bank or building society account statement - not more than 3 months' old
- Bank or building society passbook.
- If you have any difficulties providing this evidence, please let us know.
Children in the family under 18 need not supply evidence and can be registered by the parent/guardian
We do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition. We do ask, however, that the applicant lives within the Practice boundary – see below.
New Patients will be asked to complete a personal health questionnaire and to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a New Patient Health Check.
If you have a complicated medical history or take regular medication please make an further appointment with a doctor after your New Patient Health Check.
If you wish to have any information in other formats, e.g. braille, larger print, different language, etc. please ask for an “accessible information form” when registering, or when the need arises.
Visitors/Holiday makers are registered on a special form – known as a temporary resident form - provided at Reception. Foreign visitors may need to be treated as private patients - please see overseas visitors guidelines at https://www.gov.uk/
You will be registering with the Practice and can see any of the doctors here. However, you will be allocated a named GP, who is responsible for your overall care at the practice and you should contact the practice if you wish to know who this is. You may select a “preferred doctor” when you register by requesting registration with a specific doctor.
It is usually preferable to remain with the same doctor for the duration of treatment for a particular illness. When booking an appointment, you can request this particular doctor and we will endeavour to book you in with this doctor, although they may be occasions when this is not possible or another doctor may be available sooner. Continuity is particularly valuable for long-term or complicated problems.
