About Registering

Who can register?

To register at the surgery you will need to live in the practice area.

How to Register

You will need to fill in a registration form for each patient registering with the practice.

These can be obtained from reception or you can fill out a form online if you go to the ‘Registration’ tab and click on the ‘Registration form’ link.

If you are in any doubt please speak to a receptionist. It is better to register the whole household. No discrimination will be made in regard to race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or on grounds of disability or medical condition.

Please note that as of March 2013, we are now required to ask to see proof of ID for each patient and proof of address for each household registering with the surgery.

Acceptable proof of ID includes a passport, birth certificate or current UK driving licence, and acceptable proof of address includes a rental or housing agreement, a recent utility bill showing your current address (council tax statement, gas, electric, telephone or water), a recent bank statement or a current UK driving licence.

Patients will only need to bring in one of each type of document. An up-to-date UK drivers licence showing your current address can be taken as proof of both ID and address.

New Patients

All new patients over the age of 16 years are requested to fill in a new patient health questionnaire, as it can take about 6 weeks for your medical records to reach us. This provides us with valuable information on your health and needs.

Children under the age of 5 years are put in touch with the Health Visitors, there is an additional form that needs completing for the Health Visitor.

Non-registered patients

If you know someone in your household or a neighbour who is not registered with a local Doctor, please encourage them to do so. If a person lives in the area for more than 3 months they should fully register with the practice, even if they have no immediate need for medical care. Visitors staying for less than 3 months can register as temporary residents if they need medical care whilst they are in the area.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. It covers issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Registration Form

Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about yourself across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.

Alternatively, you may print off a Registration Form and medical questionnaire, fill them out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice. We will need to have the completed forms before we can offer an appointment.
