Reception has a complete pack of information for new patients to help you get the best from the practice. If you download the form to start your registration process, please ask for a New Patient Pack when you bring your form in.
Bring the completed form with you on your first visit to the practice, together with the Questionnaire that will give us a little bit more information on your medical history until your medical records reach us from your previous surgery.
You might find our Practice Booklet and Help us to help you leaflet of interest.
One member of your household can complete the paperwork for the whole family. The form requires only simple information such as previous address, new address, previous doctor, date of birth.
We register everyone with the practice and then assign you to a 'usual doctor'. They will try to see you each time you come and will be responsible for any paperwork, prescriptions or certificates you might need. Seeing your usual doctor will enable you to build up an understanding with him or her, but it may not always be possible due to working patterns, training, annual leave and other clinical commitments. If you need an appointment urgently you may be invited to speak to the Duty doctor or nurse, or for more routine matters if your usual GP is away, another doctor in the practice.
Once registered, if you have complex medical issues or require repeat medications you will be invited to see your doctor for a double appointment which will allow us to review your past medical history, height/weight, blood pressure and have a discussion on any current health needs or concerns
How we manage and use your medical information is vitally important. We are governed by strict regulations. You have a right to see the information we hold on you and can request that information is not shared with other healthcare providers without your consent.
