New Patient Registration
Patients living within the practice area may apply to register with the practice by completing form GMS1 available from reception and showing two forms of identification – a utility bill and one which contains a photograph i.e. a passport. Patients residing outside the practice area may be accepted at the practice’s discretion.
Once you are registered with the surgery you will be invited to attend for a New Patient Health Check with the practice Health Care Assistant. The examination will measure your height, weight and blood pressure, test your urine and record your past medical history. If you are currently taking any medication, you will require an additional appointment with a GP before your first prescription will be issued.
Since changes in the GP National Contract came into force on 1st April 2004, patients are now registered with the practice and not individual doctors. If you live in our pratice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms.
All registered patients have a right to express a preference to receive services from a particular performer or class of performer, either generally or in relation to any particular condition; such preferences will be recorded by the practice. However, unfortunately we can only honour this as time allows. The practice will endeavour to comply with any reasonable preference, but need not do so if the preferred performer has reasonable grounds for refusing to provide the services to the patient or if the performer does not routinely perform the services in question within the practice.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
