If you live in our practice catchment area, you can register with us. If you are registering your new baby please refer to the How to Register your New Baby section below.
4. Provide proof of ID (e.g. passport, driving licence or medical card) – you may be asked for two forms of ID
5. Provide proof of address (e.g. utility bill or bank/credit card statement from the last four months, current tenancy agreement, government agency letter, higher education letter or a letter from a recognised employer)
The forms can be downloaded via this page. Alternatively, you can visit the surgery and ask reception for a paper copy.
Once all the forms are completed, please attach with photo ID and proof of current address and please email to email@example.com, post to the practice or hand over the forms to the reception team.
However, if there are no ID and current proof of address documents attached with the forms, your registration will be not be processed.
All new patients are offered a routine check-up on joining the practice and this service is also offered to all patients between 16-75 who have not seen a Doctor in the past 3 years. An annual check-up is also offered to all patients over 74.
How to Register your New Baby
You need to register your new baby at the practice as soon as possible.
Therefore, please download and complete a GMS1 Registration form (these are also available from reception if you would prefer a paper copy) and send it to the surgery by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, posting it to the practice or handing it to the reception team.
Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.
The practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 20 minute appointment, 10 minutes for the baby check and 10 minutes for the post-natal. Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start at 8 weeks and will be given at this appointment. Please remember to bring the red book.
If you cannot make this appointment you must notify reception as soon as possible. Please be advised that if you do need to cancel, the next available appointment may be anything up to 4 weeks after that date.
The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area should medical advice be required. In this instance, persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.
To register you will need to bring your passport and a completed Temporary Resident Registration (GMS3) form (this is also available from reception if you would prefer a paper copy).
