The practice is able to take new patients providing they live in the Practice area.
The allocated time for new patient registrations is between 2.00 and 4.00pm. However, it is advisable to ring the practice and obtain the time for registration.
To register, complete the appropriate section of your medical card or complete a registration form and questionnaire obtained from our reception staff (or download below). Don’t worry if you have no card, our reception staff will still register you and organise a full health check.
In the case of a new baby, bring their NHS Number (obtainable from Child Health or the Maternity Ward) or the child’s red book.
Please fill in our new patient health questionnaire and provide suitable personal identification.
Two forms of identification are required; one to prove who you are - this would normally be some form of photo identification (such as a passport or driving licence); the other, to prove where you live, (this could be a utility bill or a bank statement).
Your medical record often takes a considerable time to arrive from your previous doctor and this gives us the opportunity of recording some basic information about you and offering you any immediate care you may need.
You will also need to bring a urine sample to this initial appointment. Please obtain a specimen bottle from our reception staff.
You will be registered with the practice rather than a specific doctor, but you have a right to ask to see a particular doctor, if you wish.
If you have a requirement for a prescription then you should arrange an appointment with a doctor to discuss your ongoing care.
Please note that consent to contact via mobile phone (phone call or SMS) and email will be assumed if no other option is marked on the registration form or when the mobile phone number is provided to the practice.
All new patients are encouraged to have a medical examination when registering with the practice.
We do not exclude patients from the practice on grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin or disability, sexual orientation, religion or religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.
Patients are free to consult whichever doctor they choose, irrespective of the doctor with whom they are registered. However, it is best if some continuity can be maintained by seeing the same doctor for each problem.
If you have a preference for a particular doctor, please inform our reception staff.
Our GPs are registered with the General Medical Council.

Changing My Details
Please inform the our reception staff if you change your name, address, marital status or telephone number, so we can keep our records accurate.
If you move out of the practice area it will be necessary for you to register with a doctor at another practice which covers that area.
Our reception staff will help you with queries about practice boundaries.
