HOW TO REGISTER AS A PATIENT

A Patient may request to be considered for application to join the practice list by completing the practice request form.  Having fulfilled the criteria to apply to join the list you will be given a new patient questionnaire to complete.  You should return the completed questionnaire along with your previous NHS medical card.

If you have lost your medical card you will need to fill in a  GMS1 form which is available from reception.   You will be registered as a patient of the GP partnership.  However you will be able to see any of the doctors of your choice dependant upon whether there is an available appointment for that doctor.  We cannot guarantee you can always see a female Doctor.

Please check you are within our catchment area before applying to join the list here is our map: Click here

WE HAVE AN APPOINTMENT REMINDER, TEXTING SERVICE, PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK WITH RECEPTION THAT WE HAVE AN UPDATED MOBILE NUMBER.

Named GP

From 1st April 2015, all of our patients have been allocated a named GP. Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice, as you may currently choose to do. Neither does it guarantee you will see your named GP every time you visit the surgery or give you priority access over other patients to your named GP.  It is important to note that access to GPs will be via our normal appointment system and will continue to be subject to the availability of individual doctors.  We aim to offer “GP of choice” appointments where possible. Please ask a member of our reception team for more information.

Out Of Area Patient Questionnaire

You have applied to join our list as an out-of-area patient. This means you will not be eligible for home visits from the surgery. It is also likely that you will no longer be eligible for other visiting services such as the district nurses, community midwives, community matron or other domiciliary services should they ever be required.

To register as an Out Of Area Patient you must fully understand the implications and if you have any concerns or doubts that this will be suitable for you, you should register at another practice close to your home address.

Before we can accept you as an out of area patient, we have a responsibility to you to ensure it is clinically safe and appropriate to do so. This means we have to be sure you are not likely to require a home visit or use of a domiciliary service in the near future.  Therefore we require you to provide us with the following information:
