New Patient Registration
If you live within the practice area, and are eligible for NHS care you can register by coming to the practice and collecting the relevant forms from reception. You may be asked for your current passport and other documentation. If you are not sure if you are eligible for NHS care, or are unsure if you live within the practice area, please ask the receptionist.
When you register you will be offered an appointment with an HCA for a new patient health check. We strongly advise you to attend this appointment, especially if you are on medication or have not been to see a doctor for some time

All patients now have a named GP (the one you are registered with) who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. You are still able to see the GP of your choice as before. If you are unsure who your named GP is and have not been contacted yet please call the surgery and the receptionists will be happy to advise.
Extended Practice Area
The practice operates an extended practice are; please ask about this at reception if you are moving home. Unfortunately, if you move outside our practice area, we will no longer be able to keep you as a patient.

Changes to Personal Details
If you change your name, address or telephone number, please give full details at reception, as we may need to contact you urgently. Please update any mobile phone numbers as we may also wish to contact you by text message re clinics and flu jabs.
