New Patient Registration
Registration times for new patients are:
4.30 pm - 6 pm
5 pm - 6 pm
1 pm - 1.30 pm
5.30 pm - 6 pm
Fridays: 12 pm - 1.30 pm
Each new patient will be required to complete the surgery’s registration form, and reception staff will be available to help patients to complete this. Due to the number of new patients who wish to register, we may only be able to register a limited number of patients on each day in order to maintain a reception service for our existing patients, although we will make every effort to register new patients within the timings identified above.
If a number of other patients are waiting to register, could you please wait and queue behind them as our staff will help patients in the queue in the order in which they came in.
Before You Register
Please note that we will not be able to register you as a patient, or any members of your family or household, until you have each attended a new patient screening appointment.
The appointment is arranged following completion of the registration forms. After the new patient screening appointment, information about new patients is put onto the surgery's clinical system, and after this appointments can be made with the GP of your choice.
If an emergency arises and you need to see a GP or Nurse in the period between registering and undertaking the New Patient Screening, please come into reception or ring the surgery to make an urgent appointment.
Please bring in the following information if you are over 16 and would like to register:
- 2 recent proofs of address, i.e. council tax bill, or utility bill for telephone (not a mobile telephone bill) water, electricity or gas. If you do not have this documentation, we are happy to register you, but will ask that this information is provided within a month of joining the surgery
- a medical card or NHS number if you have previously registered with a GP; you can also contact NHS England to obtain a medical card
- the dates and results of cervical smear tests for women aged between 25 – 60
- red imminusation books for children under the age of 5; if you were previously living overseas, we will need to see proof of the immunisations received
Please note: we do not accept rent books, driving licences, tenancy agreements, ID cards or documents downloaded from the internet as proof of address. If you only have one proof of address, we would be happy to accept you as a patient, and would ask you to provide the second proof within a month of joining the surgery.
The surgery accepts new patients who are homeless. Please contact reception if you are homeless and wish to join the surgery.
