How to Register
To register at this practice you will need to call in person and complete a registration form. You will be asked to complete a simple patient questionnaire so we have as much information about any medical condition you may have until we receive your full medical record from your previous doctor. Please give us as much information as you can.
The registration procedure may take a few days so if you are on regular medication please make sure you have enough to last you until you can make an appointment with one of our doctors.
You will be offered a health check with one of our Health Care Assistants in order to assess any current or future needs and to introduce our services. If you suffer from any long term condition e.g. diabetes, asthma, COPD, CHD, we have Practice Nurses who specialise in these conditions and you should make an early appointment with them for a review.
You can download the relevant forms here and bring them in to the surgery once you've completed them:
- GMS1 - Family Doctor Services Registration
- New Patient Registration Pack
- Registration Form - Adult
- Registration Form - Child
- Further Information
- Identification Documents
- Health Questionnaire
- Carers Form
Please make sure you bring both the GMS1 as well as your completed patient questionnaire to enable us to complete your patient registration.
