To register at the practice, you must:
- Complete a registration form and a new patient health questionnaire
- Attend a new patient appointment with the Practice Nurse
- If you default from your new patient appointment and do not inform the reception staff, you may be refused acceptance onto the practice list
You can download a registration form below, or ask at the reception desk and fill one out in person. The form must be signed and therefore cannot be submitted on-line.
We will ask you for proof of identity (please refer to our registration policy; medical cards are not accepted as proof of identity).
Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice and you will be sent a new medical card. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice.
The practice has a non-discrimination policy for accepting new patients. There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case, simply choose another GP in your local area.
If English is not your first language, the practice has access to interpreters. Please inform reception staff and this assistance can be provided.
