Steps to New Patient Registration
1) Check You Live Within the Practice's Catchment Area
The practice has a catchment area within which it can accept new patients and you must live within it's boundaries.
2) Complete Registration and Health Check Forms
Pick up a registration form from reception
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 Primary Care Trust to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new surgery. Your NHS number is extremely important to ensure we obtain the correct medical records from your previous GP. With your NHS number we can obtain your records electronically making the registration process much quicker. You can telephone your previous GP to obtain this information or find it on your prescription slip.
The Health Check Questionnaire will ask you for some basic, lifestyle and allergy questions, so we can provide the best service possible from the start.
3) Placement on the Practice List
Once you have completed and signed the forms bring them along to the surgery to be registered with the practice.
Unfortunately the form can not be sent back electronically to the practice as the practice requires a signature to register you as a patient.
