We are happy to register new patients who live within our practice boundary area. In order to undertake the registration process we require you to complete a Registration Form and also a Questionnaire. You should then hand in these documents to the Surgery along with 2 forms of identification, one of which must have a photograph. Finally, you will need to make an appointment with our staff to have a Health Check at a future time that is convenient to yourself
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Once you’ve been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the Practice.Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
