New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our Practice area.
We will need your NHS number and you will need to complete an application form and a Practice Health Questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. The Practice Health Questionnaire will be assessed by a member of the clinical team and you may be invited to have a health check with either a doctor or a nurse. Should you wish to register for online access facilities, you will also be required to provide proof of identity preferably some photographic Identification if it is available. Please also complete the extra chld registration forms required for children under the age of 17 years.
Please print out the registration forms (see below) and bring completed and signed forms to the surgery. Please contact the Practice if you have any queries and please do ask for assistance should you require it when completing these forms.
This surgery is now part of the GP2GP scheme where a patient's Electronic Medical Records are sent automatically from a patient's old surgery upon leaving; any manual records follow on. This gives our clinicians immediate access to any important medical information that has been recorded on a patient's electronic record.
All patients have a named GP but are encouraged to see any of our clinicians as they all have direct access to all medical records.
Patients who work/study outside of the Practice Area:
With effect from 5th January 2015, patients who live in the area covered by the Practice but work or study elsewhere, now have the option of remaining registering with this Practice as well as the option to register with a Practice near their place of work/study. This will enable patients to ensure that they are always able to access urgent primary medical care. It is worth noting that patients' physical records will be retained by their 'home' Practice.
Patients who live in the area covered by the Practice but study elsewhere now have the option of remaining with this Practice ('Home' Practice). Students may wish to register also with a local practice near to their place of study, especially if they have any underlying medical conditions (Students will need to decide which Practice they would like their physical patient notes to reside). Students may register as a temporary resident at any local practice near to the place of their study should they need urgent primary medical care.
