To register at the practice you need to live within the practice catchment area as outlined in the practice area map. If you have moved into the area from another GP practice you need to provide your medical card or details of your previous GP plus your NHS number. This helps the NHS arrange for the transfer of your medical records from your previous practice.
We would also like you to complete a short health questionnaire, and see a member of the practice for a health check.
You can drop into the surgery during opening hours but avoid early morning when priority is given to those ringing for emergency appointments. We are open on Saturday but do not arrive after 11.00 on Saturdays and as there is only one Receptionist, priority will be given to patients arriving for appointments.
You will need to bring or know:-
- Your NHS number (if you have previously registered with the NHS)
- Proof of address (a bill less than 3 months old)
- Proof of ID
- For Children we need their immunisation history
- For Adults we need to know your screening history
You will need to bring with you or complete at the practice:-
We recommend that you see the same GP on an on-going basis. This may mean you have to wait a little longer to get an appointment with your doctor who knows your history. Always let reception know who your usual doctor is when booking an appointment.
Out of Area Registrations
For patients who work in our catchment area and DO NOT live in the area but would like to register with our practice as a new patient, we offer the patient to be registered as an ‘out of area’ registered patient WITHOUT HOME VISITS. This will mean that we are aware that you live outside the practice area (catchment area) and when you registered at the practice it was made aware to you that we are not required to provide you with a home visit.
