New Patients

How to Register as a Patient

You will need a Registration Pack. These can either be downloaded (see below) or you can collect from the surgery.

Once you have filled out the GMS1 form and the New Patient Questionnaire in full, please either post or hand deliver to the surgery.

Registration Pack

Once we have recorded your details from the above form, you will be a registered patient with the practice. From completing these forms, there may be occasions where you will be invited to attend in person for a new patient review with a Healthcare Coordinator; in order to address your health needs more comprehensively.

Our practice may choose to accept or decline any application on reasonable grounds. We will not refuse any application on grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.

Special Categories of Registration

In addition to standard patient registrations, we welcome patient registrations to those who fall into the following categories:

  • University/college student:
    • This service is available to students who would normally reside in the area, but who will be registering at their college health service for term time care. We will be able to provide you with continuity of care whilst you are at home during holidays or when taking home breaks, by keeping a health record that can be activated at the beginning of college holidays by a simple email or phone call, or as an emergency. If you are not already a patient, it would be best to set up this registration a year before you go to college to allow us to get to know you and build up a medical record.
  • Maternity care only:
    • You have a right to be seen for maternity services at whatever surgery you choose and provided that the practice is happy to offer this service for the duration of the pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after. This service is free of charge as it is NHS funded. Your general care remains with your own GP.
  • Contraceptive services only:
    • You have the right to be seen at whatever surgery you wish to receive contraceptive services, provided that the practice is happy to offer this service. This service is free of charge as it is NHS funded. Your general care remains with your own GP.
  • Disabled access:
    • The healthy living centre has disabled access and has been designed to meet all the latest provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). Our staff will be pleased to assist you and make your visit to the surgery as pleasant and comfortable an experience as possible.
