Just fill in the registration form online.
Please have your NHS number because this helps us get your records from your previous GP.
On registration, new patients are encouraged to see our Health Care Assistant. This provides us with useful information about your medical background and current health.
If you have an on-going problem e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, etc, our Health Care Assistant will be able to explain monitoring procedures and refer you to the appropriate person.
If you take regular medication you will need to make an appointment, preferably after your new patient health check, to see the doctor you have been registered with. The doctor needs the opportunity to review with you, your medical history/medication to enable them to authorise your prescriptions.
From April 2014 all practices are required to provide all their patients aged 75 and over with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
Your named GP will appear on the bottom of your medication list, if you are not on any medication, ask the receptionist when you hand in your registration documents.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice, which we encourage our patients to do.
