New Patient Registration

Click here to see if you live in our practice area

The Practice welcomes new patients. You must be living in our catchment area in order to register with us. You can check whether you are by clicking on the link above!
 When you register with us, we will request details of your past medical problems so as to avoid delay while we wait for your records to reach us. Hand written records can take anything up to three months to arrive at the practice. Even in these days of coded computerised medical records, there is as yet no way of transferring the electronic record from practice to practice.

We will also ask you to provide identification on registering. It is preferable for us to see one item with your photo (e.g. passport or driving licence) and one item containing your address.

Register before you need us

Many new patients only register with us when they have a medical problem. We strongly recommend that you register when you move into the Practice area. This advice applies particularly to students who often forget to register with a doctor when they arrive at college.

Other fit young professionals are rather proud of the fact that they still are registered with the family doctor where their parents live and regard it as a weakness to even consider that they might one day require an urgent appointment! While we would hope not turn any unregistered patient away, who requested help, it is much more sensible to plan.

Download registration forms here

In order to register you will need to obtain three forms from reception. This is the GMS1 form, the New Patient Questionnaire and the Alcohol Monitoring form. If you're registering a child or a baby you will also need the GMS1 form along with the correct questionnaire. Alternatively you can download the forms here and fill them prior to coming in to the surgery.

Please remember that you will need to fill in separate forms for each person you wish to register. If you are registering your children as well as yourself you will be asked for their immunisation details.

  • Completed GMS1 form

  • A list of any Medication you are currently taking
  • Proof of your validity (Passport/Driving License)
  • Proof of your home address
