New Patient Registration

Steps to New Patient Registration

Step 1
Check you are within the practice's catchment area 
Each practice has a catchment area within which they can accept new patients.

Step 2
Complete Registration and Health Check Form - available from reception staff at surgery
The registration form will ask you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, previous address and doctor. This information helps the Clinical Commissioning Group to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new surgery.  The New patient questionnaire will ask you for some basic,  lifestyle and allergy questions, so we can provide the best service possible from the start. 

Please Note
The new patient registration form is a legal document and needs to be filled in, signed and brought to the practice. Without a correctly completed and signed form the practice can not proceed to register you as a patient.

Step 3
Placed on the Practice list
Once you have completed and signed the form bring the form along to the surgery to be registered with the practice, along with 2 forms of ID. (Passport/driving licence and a utility bill).
