New Patient Registration
All patients are registered with the Practice but are also allocated a named GP to ensure continuity of care.
We accept new patient registration from the area shown on the map opposite. To register, we have a few simple formalities.
Firstly you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire to help us establish your immediate care needs.

Secondly, you must provide documents such as a photographic driving licence or passport to confirm your identity as well as something like a utility bill to confirm your address.
If you do not have a medical card, then you will be asked to complete a GMS1 form but you will still need to provide proof of identity and residency.
Remember, if you move or change telephone number, you must notify us immediately.
We have a code of conduct to help make everyone’s visit to the surgery as safe and as pleasant as possible:
- Please keep all fire exits and disabled spaces clear at all times. If your child has used any of the toys, please ensure they are cleared away and do not pose a tripping hazard, particularly to elderly patients whose vision may be impaired.
- The use of mobile phones in the surgery is prohibited.
- We expect patients to be considerate to our staff and fellow patients at all times.
- Sometimes GP appointments over run for reasons beyond our control, we ask for your patience and understanding.
- Patients who are rude, aggressive and violent or who persistently fail to attend appointments will be asked to leave the Practice and seek care elsewhere.
- We have an open door policy for accepting new patients providing they live within our catchment area and are eligible for treatment. If however a patient is not accepted for any other reason, an explanation will be provided.
