To register at the surgery you will be asked to provide your current medical card or photographic identification in the form of a passport or driving licence and 2 utility bills for the address you are living in at present. Please ask at reception for a registration form to complete.
You will be asked to complete details on the form. If you have any difficulties with this please ask the receptionist for help. You may need to provide your National Health Number but note that this is not the same as your National Insurance Number. You can obtain this number from your current GP.
A health check appointment with the practice nurse will be arranged if required. This is to obtain as much clinical detail as possible and you may also need to see the doctor if you require medication. Your records will then be applied for but as these may take some weeks to arrive at the surgery it is very important that you attend for the health check if you are asked to do so.
When registering with the practice you will be allocated a named GP who is responsible for your overall care. A member of the reception team can inform you about your named GP. However, this does not prevent you from seeing any other GP of your preference.
New Patient Registration. The practice may ask you to register elsewhere if we feel that we cannot provide you with the services you personally require because you live outside of the practice area (see below).
