New Patient Registration

The Practice is able to take new patients providing they live in the Practice Area (see separate page).

To register, complete the appropriate section of your medical card or complete a registration form obtained from our Reception Staff.  Don’t worry if you have no card, our Reception Staff will still register you and organise a full health check.

In the case of a new baby, bring their NHS number (obtainable from Child Health or the Maternity Ward) or your child’s Red Book.

Please fill in our new patient health questionnaire (downloadable from our website or available from our Reception Staff) and provide suitable personal identification.

Two forms of identification are required: one to prove who you are – this would normally be some form of photo identification (such as a passport or driving licence); the other, to prove where you live, (this could be a utility bill or a bank statemenrt).

Your complete medical record often takes a considerable time (1-2 months) to arrive from your previous doctor and this questionnaire gives us the opportunity of recording some basic information about you and offering you any immediate care you may need.

You will also need to bring a urine sample with you to this initial appointment.  Please obtain a specimen bottle from our Reception Staff.

Although you may be registered with a particular doctor, you have the right to see any of the doctors working at the Practice if you wish although we cannot always guarantee the availability of a particular doctor on the particular day you need to attend the surgery.

If you have a requirement for a prescription then you should arrange an appointment with a doctor of your choice to discuss your ongoing care.

Please note that consent to contact via mobile phone (phone call or SMS) will be assumed if no other option is marked on the registration form or when the mobile phone number is provided to the Practice.

We do not exclude patients from the Practice on the grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.


You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
