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.
How to register:
Patients who wish to register must live within the practice boundary, please ask at reception. To register, patients must bring along their existing medical card or fill in a registration form available from reception. We also require identification (passport, drivers licence) and address confirmation (recent utility bill or bank statement. For under 5s - Red Book). You will need to make a 'new patient check' appointment with the practice nurse. It is essential that you attend this appointment to enable us to evaluate your medical requirements. It helps us check on any potential problems you may have and also helps us to monitor the health needs of the practice as a whole. Blood pressure, urine testing and general health enquiries will be carried out at this appointment.
Whilst you will be registered with the Practice, you will have the right to express a preference in terms of the GP you wish to see, although to ensure continuity, you should try to see the same doctor where possible. We will not refuse to accept you on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
We are happy to see anyone staying with or visiting a registered patient if they require a Doctor and they cannot get to their own practice due to distance.
