Joining the practice
You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number to register with the surgery, however, this information does help us check your eligibility quickly and efficiently.
You must complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire to register with us. This will give us useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to reach us. These forms are available from reception or can be downloaded (see links below).
Live within our catchment area?
To be eligible to register as a new patient at the practice, you must live within our catchment area. We do not accept new patients who live outside of this area.
Please complete the forms below and return to us at your earliest convenience.
All new patients are offered a free health check with a healthcare professional. This can be arranged at registration. This allows us to review any health conditions, organise your medication and arrange any necessary tests.
Change of Address
Please complete and return to us a Change of Address form if you have moved. Please notify us as well if you have moved out of our catchment area (see link above).
Your named GP
Each patient is allocated equally and fairly to a 'named GP', who will take overall responsibility for their care.
You can change your named GP at any time by contacting the surgery. In addition, you are free to see any GP in the practice that you wish if they are available (you don't have to stick with your named GP). A duty-doctor is available every day for urgent issues that cannot wait for a routine appointment.
You will be informed of who your named GP is, but you can also find out by contacting the surgery.
