New Patient Registration
We are delighted to accept new patients who live in the surrounding area onto our practice list.
When you register, you will be allocated your ‘usual GP’. We recommend continuing care with the same GP, to improve your health outcomes, particularly if you have complex or chronic health problems, and it also benefits the doctor patient relationship.
However you have the right to contact any GP, subject to availability.
Please complete the new patient questionnaire with information on your medical conditions and repeat medication.
Please make an appointment with a health care assistant for a preliminary health check.
If you would like to see a particular GP please let the receptionist know. We will always try to ensure registration with your chosen GP if possible,but there may be some occasions when it is not.
Does it matter where I live?
Yes. We can only accept patients who live within this geographical area as this allows us to make house calls when necessary and to balance the number of patients between different practices.

If you wish to register with us, please visit the surgery and talk to our reception staff. We will need you to bring some form of identification. This can either be a photo ID (passport/driving license) or a utility bill. Simply see our reception staff who will give you a simple form to fill in. Please ensure you know the following details:-
Full name, including previous names
Date and place of birth
New address and post code
Last name and address of your previous Doctor
NHS number if known - not the same as your National Insurance number!
When patients register with us they are given a named GP. If you are uncertain of who your named (registered) GP is, please contact the surgery.
We strongly believe in patient choice and patients are able to see any GP they wish, either for a single appointment or for long term care.
However, we do prefer that patients see the same GP for any ongoing problems to maintain continuity
Anyone staying at an address other than their normal residence for less than three months is entitled to free NHS treatment if they develop a condition which is classed as an emergency or requires "immediately necessary" attention. However, everyone travelling away from home should ensure they have sufficient supplies of prescribed medicine to take during their stay. Doctors are entitled to charge a consultation fee and a private prescription charge if they are asked to prescribe routine medication.
All patients registering as a temporary patient will also need to bring some form of identification. This can either be a photo ID (passport/driving license) or a utility bill.
