New Patient Registration
If you live in our practice area and wish to register as a patient at our surgery then we need certain information from you and each member of your family so that we are able to trace your previous medical records. We advise you here on how you may register as there are several methods of doing so.
1. You may call into the surgery bringing with you your NHS medical cards from your previous NHS doctor.
2. You may call into the surgery without bringing with you your NHS medical cards from your previous NHS doctor. This may arise if you cannot find your cards or if you do not have any e.g. if you have recently arrived in the country. This is less preferable since it may take longer to trace your medical records and you will have to fill in more paperwork, so please find your medical cards if you can.
Please note that we cannot guarantee that we shall accept you as a patient since, for example, it may be that your address is not in our catchment area.
3. Before registration is complete a full health review with our practice nurse will be offered to you.
All new patients wishing to join the practice will require postcode authorisation before acceptance. Those patients who move out of the area will be asked to find a GP in their local area.
