Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our online regsitration form

You may also need to email the practice with a picture of your photo identification and proof of address such as bank statement, recent utility bill showing your name and current address.

When normal service resumes, you will be asked to bring the hard copies into the practice.

 

Live within our boundary area?

We welcome new patients to the surgery who reside within the catchment area. You can check if you are within our catchment area by entering your postcode below.

 
 

Registering with the Practice

Our practice welcomes new patients. To register you will need to:

  • Please fill out our online registration form
  • Provide us with proof of address and some form of photographic ID (e.g. passport, driving licence)
  • Provide us with your NHS number (if you have one) – this can be acquired from your previous practice

When you join the practice you will be given a named GP. This is the GP who will have overall responsibility for your care whilst at the practice. If you wish to know who your named GP is, please ask at reception. If you have a preference of GP, please let us know and we will endeavour to comply with it.

Please note: this arrangement does not restrict in any way which GP you can see at the practice – you will be able to book appointments with any of our GPs regardless of who your named GP is. 

If you are on regular medication please ensure you have at least 2 weeks prescription to avoid problems.
