We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. Registration is with the practice. Once registered, you are able to see any GP. If you have a request to see a specific GP, there may be sometime before an appointment with that Doctor is available, due to the working hours of the GPs.
The procedure in place is that all patients requesting to join the list must:
- Book an appointment with the reception team to register *
- Bring a photographic ID and
- A copy of a utility bill with an address within the practice area.
- For registration of children, a copy of the birth certificate is required.
- Provide NHS number (this can be obtained from previous practice if not known)
In readiness for electronic transfer of patient notes, the practice also requires new patients to provide their NHS Number when registering. This can be found on an NHS Medical Card. Patients who do not know their NHS Number should contact their previous GP prior to registering to request their number.
* At this unusual time, we would be happy to accept completed forms via our email address, along with the appropriate identification documents (as stated above) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure all forms are COMPLETED & SIGNED and a good quality copy is forwarded, with all 4 corners of the form visible. Please submit BOTH the registration form and questionnaire. Please note that sending information via email does not provide end to end encryption and is done so at the individuals own risk.
A new patient registration form needs to be completed and signed along with a questionnaire, which are provided by the practice. If a new patient holds an NHS Medical Card, this can be submitted in place of a registration form. If patients are on repeat medication we request a copy of the slip from the previous practice. Following completion of the forms you will be registered at the practice.
You are advised to contact your usual GP is you require medical attention prior to your new patient check, unless you have moved from out of the area, and this is not practical.
