Join the practice
Registration is open to any person with NHS entitlement residing within the Practice Area. If you move away from the Practice Area, you will need to register with another GP Surgery closer to your new home.
How to Register
You will be asked to complete a Registration Form with details of your last registered doctor and last home address. You will also need to provide two forms of identification: a photo ID (driving licence or passport) and proof of address (recent utility bill or bank statement). Please come to the surgery during the afternoon to register.
All patients are now allocated a named GP. If you are not sure who this is, please enquire when you next visit or call the surgery.
When you register you may be asked to provide a urine sample and to take your blood pressure on the machine available for patient use.
If you are on repeat medication it is sensible to make an appointment with your new GP.
