Each practice has a catchment area within which they can accept new patients.

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 Central Operations Team to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new surgery. 

You will be asked to complete some additional information forms, we can then collect important information relating to your health and your future care.We ask, where possible to see 2 forms of ID-one of which needs to be photo ID. Examples of these can be your passport, driving licence, utiility bill or a letter with your address on.

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 cannot proceed to register you as a patient.

Once you are registered you will be allocated a named GP.
