New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
You will need to complete a registration form which can be downloaded and completed, or hard copies can be collected from our reception team.
We will ask you for basic demographic information, such as name and address, date of birth and your NHS number (if you know it), and also some basic health information as it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
Preventing Identify Fraud
It is an NHS requirement that all new patients registering with the Practice produce proof of identity to verify the patient is who they claim to be and are entitled to NHS treatment. Each individual over the age of 18 will need to provide a minimum of two original documents supporting evidence of identity, and proof of residence in the practice area, which can include:
- Photo Driving Licence
- National Identity Card
- NHS Medical Card
- Utility bill
- Bank statement
- Council tax bill
Please complete the relevant forms and bring them to the practice with the relevant identification documents at the following times:
Monday – Friday
11 am – 12.30 pm
3 pm – 6 pm
Please allow a minimum of 20 minutes to complete the registration process. Patients will be seen on a first come first serve basis and therefore you will be required to drop in and wait.
At this time, you will be issued with a username and password that will allow you access to the SystmOnline facility, through which you can book routine GP appointments and order repeat medication.
New Patient Appointments
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
All new patients who take repeat medication will need an introductory appointment with a GP to review medication and set up repeat prescriptions if appropriate.
In addition, all patients registering with the Practice can book a ‘New Patient Medical’ with a member of the nursing team. This will include taking measurement of your height, weight and blood pressure, testing a urine sample (specimen bottles available from Reception), and will also establish relevant past medical and family history, including medical, social and lifestyle factors. It is NOT possible to discuss medication at this appointment.
