New Patient Registration
New Patients are welcome to register at the surgery and we are currently accepting new patients. The practice has a policy that we do not discriminate in terms of race, creed, age, disability etc. We do register new patients who live outside our practice boundaries (see map opposite), however, because of the greater distance to your home the practice is under no obligation to offer you a home visit.
Patients have a right to see a specific practitioner, if they so wish, and they should tell the receptionist of their preference when making an appointment. However, while the practice will endeavour to comply with their wishes, there will be occasions when it will not be possible.
To Register we will require several pieces of information from you. Every patient needs to complete and return a GMS1 form. This is an official document that we must have by law in order to register you with us. If you are an adult, we also require a completed New Patient Questionnaire form. This is a medical questionnaire which will give us some basic information on your current health and lifestyle. We require this because it can take a considerable period of time for your medical records to arrive when you change practices.
For children to register, we require a completed GMS1 and a completed age related form. These contain some simple questions regarding the child's home environment and school and are compulsory.
Finally, we require identification in order to register you. For adults, this means a form of photo I.D (passport or driving license) and proof of address (utility bill or bank statement). If a child or young person under the age of 18 is registering, we only require a birth certificate.
All the forms you need to register can be downloaded by clicking the links below. Please bring the completed forms with the appropriate identification to reception and we can begin your registration process immediately. You can also collect the forms from reception and complete them in the waiting room, but we will still require the appropriate I.D in order to register you.
