New Patient Registration

Our Practice List is open to everyone living within our catchment.  Applicants who are eligible to receive N.H.S. treatment may register by completing the appropriate registration form available at the reception desk.  To facilitate your registration please bring your N.H.S. medical card if available with you.  In addition please understand that we are entitled to refuse non-urgent/non-emergency treatment pending your registration. 

The Practice does not discriminate against race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical conditions.


Preliminary visit 

As a registered patient you will be offered a preliminary appointment designed to introduce you to our services and to discuss, if you feel it is appropriate, any medical worries or problems you may have.  At this visit you will be seen by a clinical member of our team whose function is to collect data about your health and to introduce you to the various facilities available to you.  We hope to see all newly registered patients within three months of enrolment.  May we request that you complete the brief preliminary visit questionnaire available from reception and bring it with you at the time of your appointment.  Please bring a specimen of your own urine when you arrive for new patient screening appointment. 

The Practice runs an appointment system with doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants.  An appointment can be made in person or by telephoning the Surgery during opening hours.  When you contact the surgery please ask the receptionist for their name in case you need to contact the surgery further.

As per N.H.S. registration requirements you will be registered with the Practice.  However, you do have a right to express a preference to see any doctor.
