Patient History Form
Once completed, please return these forms to to reception. Alternatively, you can pick up a copy from the practice. Please note that it is helpful if you can provide proof of ID and address when you register, so please bring these documents along with you (i.e. passport or photo driving licence, plus utility bill (less than 3 month's old) with our name and address.
It is not possible to register with a particular doctor as all registrations are with the Practice, however you may express a preference to receive care from a particular GP. This request will be held on your medical records and we will do our best to accommodate you in this.
If you change your address within the Practice area (see map above), your telephone number or other details, please notify the Practice in writing as soon as possible. You can do this online from the home page.
Please note that the Practice does not accept out of area registrations.
New Patient Medical Checks
We offer all new patients the opportunity to make an appointment for a medical when they register with the Practice.
These are conducted by the practice nurse and include basic health checks and the opportunity to discuss any medical problems at the earliest opportunity.
This is particularly important as your notes will not arrive from your previous GP for several weeks after you register with us.
Named Accountable GP
When you register, you will be informed of your named accountable GP. This is the doctor who is responsible for co-ordinating your care. If you do not know who your named GP is, please contact the surgery and ask the receptionist. Please note that this does not mean you have to see this GP every time you visit the surgery, you can still see any GP of your choice.
