New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area:
As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.
On registering, all new patients will need to undergo a medication review with the new GP. Only those medications or treatments deemed necessary for the health of the patient and which comply to the latest pharmaceutical advice will continue to be prescribed/provided by doctors at this Practice. Any treatments from other agencies from home or abroad will also need to be reviewed.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Newly registered patients are also able to have a health check with a health care assistant, practice nurse or GP within six months of registration if required.
Please contact reception for further information.
All new patients registering with the Practice are asked to complete a GMS1 form http://www.nhs.uk/servicedirectories/Documents/GMS1.pdf at the surgery.
All new patients registering at the surgery are asked to bring their medical card or NHS number or name and address of previous doctor.
Registration takes place everyday, it tends to be busier in the morning so if you can avoid this time then please do.
Persons aged 16 years and over will need the following documentation:
- Your current medical card (if available), or NHS Number
- Photographic proof of identity (eg passport, driving licence or immigration papers)
- Proof of current address (eg utility bill or bank statement)
- Under 16's - birth certificate, red baby book, NHS card/number
Approval will take up to 8 working days.
If you are taking medication, it is essential that you see a doctor to set up your repeat medications.
You may request to register with the practice by completing the patient registration form. We will then post your Registration Form which needs to be completed by you and returned to us before you can be seen by a Doctor at the Surgery. Alternatively, you can complete the GMS1 form.
Once we have received your form we can process this within one working day.
Forms and information you may require along with the GMS1 form
