We are proud of the facilities and services that we offer. We work very hard to make sure that every patient feels comfortable and relaxed in our care, and we welcome new patients into this environment.

Our practice list is open and we are accepting new patients that live in our practice catchment area.

How to Register as a Patient

  1. Print off and complete the following form for each person wishing to register. We will need you to fully complete and sign the form before you can be registered. This will enable us to obtain your records from your previous surgery before you next need advice or treatment:
    Download the Permanent Patient Registration form (GMS1)
  2. Bring the fully completed and signed form with you to the practice together with two forms of identification for each person. A photo ID such as your driving license or Passport and a utility bill with your address on it are the common forms of identification used. There are other suitable forms of identification we accept as alternatives, please ask reception for details
  3. Do you care for someone who could not manage without you or are you someone that is cared for?
    If yes, please take a look at the resources on our carers page.
  4. If you want to register with a particular doctor, we will do our best to carry out your request. We will tell you if we cannot meet your preference and why we cannot meet it.

Health Checks for New Patients

As a new patient, we will invite you to see our practice nurse or health care support worker for an initial health check. When we carry this out we will find out about your medical history, arrange for any blood tests you need and arrange for you to attend our chronic disease management clinics, if appropriate.

These health checks are very important as we are able to establish your health profile early on and offer the best possible support from when you first register with us.

Please make every effort to attend as it is for your benefit.
