New Patient Registration
Patients wishing to join the practice will need to complete two forms which can be obtained from Reception. Please note that, in accordance with current government/NHS advice we are required to check for proof of identity and so the reception staff will request this. Proof of identity could be a passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, driving licence, utility bill or bank statement. Other forms of identification may be acceptable.
When registering children we encourage parents to provide a summary of their immunisation or a copy of the immunisation pages from their "red book" so that the practice can provide a timely and effective immunisation service.
If you have booked a GP appointment prior to registering you will need to arrive at the surgery about 15 minutes before the appointment time in order to complete the forms and for the receptionist to transfer your details onto the computer. The doctor will be unable to see you until this has been done.
For those patients who do not require an appointment to see a GP, the relevant forms can be completed in your own time and returned to the receptionist who will book you in for a new patient "check". If you are taking long term medication as a repeat prescription then we would encourage you to make an appointment for a new patient "check" with one of the doctors, so that the doctor can get an overview of your health and set up repeat prescriptions on our clinical IT system, SystmOne. Otherwise make an appointment with one of the practice nurses. Please bring a urine sample with you to this check so that we can screen for diabetes and kidney disease. Specimen containers for this can be obtained from reception.
Healthy children under the age of 12 years do not need a new patient "check", but we do like to have their red book brought in so we can ensure vaccination records are up to date. However, if you have a child under 12 that has significant health issues you should let us know.
Registration forms and medical questionnaires can be downloaded from the above “Registering Online” section below.
