New Patient Registration
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) for each member of your family, signed by them unless they are under 16, which is available at reception. Alternatively you can print one off prior to your visit by clicking here.
You should bring your current NHS medical card to reception, and, if you have it, your 10 digit NHS number. We will require the name and address of your previous NHS doctor.
When you register you will also be offered the opportunity to register as an Organ or Blood donor.
Patients wishing to register must be entitled to NHS care as per government guidelines in force at the time. We may require proof of identity or residency.
You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP. However, you will be able to see the GP of your choice for routine appointments.
New Patient Health Check
We recommend a new-patient health check for patients aged 45 years or older or, those on repeat medication or suffering from a chronic disease. This helps us to get to know you and be aware of any particular medical issues you may have as it can take some weeks before your medical record arrives from your previous GP.
When you come for the check please bring a fresh sample of urine in a suitable container.
Changes to Personal Details
If you change your name, phone number or address please let the receptionists know as soon as possible so that we can update our records.
If you move out of our practice area you should re-register with a Practice closer to your new home – details of GP practices in your new area can be found through the ‘NHS Choices’ website www.nhs.uk.
