New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please click on the practice boundary tab above to check whether you are within our Practice Area which is outlined in black on the map. The area outlined in red to the north east of the Practice Area is the "Outer Practice Boundary". This is the boundary within which the practice is not expected to accept new patients but will retain, where appropriate, existing registered patients if they move there and will continue to carry out home visits where clinically necessary. This enables patients to remain registered with the practice where they move house locally, but where patients rely on frequent home visits from the practice it would normally be in their interests to choose a practice within reasonable travelling distance of where they live.
If you are a new patient wanting to register with the practice, please bring your medical card into reception. If you are unable to find this, a new patient registration form can be completed at reception. When registering as a new patient you will need to provide identification which shows proof of address. You will then be asked to book an appointment for a new patient health check so that a brief outline of your medical history and medication can be taken, prior to your medical record arriving. If you are registering your new born baby with the surgery we will need your babies NHS number. You will find this on your baby’s hospital wrist band.
If you know of someone who is visiting the area for a short period of time and needs medical advice or to be seen by a doctor, we have the facility to deal with temporary patients. The patient will need to complete a temporary services form which is available from reception and provide an appropriate proof of identification.
Please contact reception for further information.
You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
Please note: For Organ and Blood Donations you can now self-register on the NHS Blood and Transplant website www.nhsbt.nhs.uk. If you prefer to talk to someone to register you can telephone the NHS Blood and Transplant Helpdesk on 0300 123 2323. Please do not complete this section of the form if you wish to become a donor.
