Registering With the Practice
In order to register with this Practice as a permanent patient, you must be resident in our practice area as shown below and for settled purposes. A Receptionist will be happy to confirm if you are within our practice area prior to registration.
Patients registering with the Practice should be resident within the defined Inner Practice Area.[See Map below]
New patients registering with the Practice will be asked to complete a Medical Registration Form, if possible please complete and bring with you to the surgery or pop in and ask for a copy from the Reception Team. You do not need proof of ID to register with the practice, but if you would like to apply for Patient Access, which enables you to order your medication and book appointments online, you will need to provide us with ID. This should be photographic ID such as driving licence or passport AND a document to confirm your address, such as a utility bill, bank statement or rent book.
You will be registered with the practice as a whole and will be assigned to the list of one of the partners. We prefer patients to see their Registered GP if they can when booking appointments as we believe this provides better continuity of care for patients. You may request an appointment with another GP if you wish.
All patients at this practice are allocated a named GP (this is your registered GP). Patients are encouraged to see their allocated named GP if they are available, as we believe that this provides better continuity of care for patients. If your usual GP is not available you may make an appointment to see another GP of your choice. But your registered GP is responsible for your overall care.
If you have friends or relatives staying with you and they become unwell during their stay, the Doctors are able to offer treatment. If however they are from a country with which we have no reciprocal health agreement there could be a private fee for consultations and medication.
