The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire. If you take regular medication, you will be asked to have a new patient consultation with the doctor and nurse.
You will be asked to bring photo proof of Identification and you will be asked about your preferences for record sharing and the use of online services.
You can register by completing a form available from reception. To save time you can also download and print a registration form. You will need to complete this by hand and bring it to the surgery.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
If you need to see a GP whilst visiting the area, please call NHS Direct 111. They will triage your call and send you to the nearest or most appropriate service.
If you are staying in our area longer, you can be registered with us as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to register as a permanent patient and Reception staff can help you with this. This will allow the Doctors to access your past medical history and medication to ensure that you are treated safely by our practice.
