Practice Area Map ( please check if you live with in our practice area marked by Red circle. RED circle: Our practice area. The Blue circle: Outer practice boundary. Registration for patients out side the red circle but with in the blue circle is only at our discretion)

New Patient Registration Forms:

 

You can register with our surgery by completing a New Patient Registration Form (GMS1)  which can be printed from the link below or can be obtained from our reception. You will also be required to complete a New Patient Health Questionnaire which can also be printed from the link below.

 

To register please complete the forms below and take it to the reception along with any other required additional documents (eg: proof of address or id etc).

Our Receptionist will ask you to submit a completed GMS1 registration form and also a medical questionnaire. We will require photo identification i.e.; Passport/Driving license and proof of address in the form of: Utility bill, bank statement etc but not mobile phone bill. If you have not had a GP in the UK before you will need to bring additional documents.

If you have been registered with the NHS before, we will need your NHS number. This will enable us to get your medical records to the doctor as quickly as possible.

New Patients Health Questionnaire:

We ask all new patients to fill in a questionnaire about their current state of health. You will be given a new patient health questionnaire by the receptionist when you register or you can print this from the above link.

New Patients Health Check:

New patients are offered a health check by the nurse where you will have the chance to discuss your health. We will also check your blood pressure. An appointment will be given to you when you register.

When attending the New Patient Check appointment with the Nurse:

  • Please bring an urine specimen in a white top bottle (please ask the reception to give you a white top bottle)
  • If you are on any prescribed repeat medications, please bring the repeat medication list from previous GP.

Requesting Medications:

If you are on any prescribed repeat medications from your previous doctor, please bring the repeat medication list from previous GP.

Failure to submit the repeat list or any other form of documents (such as medication boxes with your name and details etc) to support the use of your medication, may delay in you getting your medication on time.

This is because the doctor has to make sure that you get the correct medication and the correct dose of your prescribed medications. This is also to avoid any medication error or to avoid causing you any harm by giving wrong prescription.

For these reasons, we will not accept a verbal request for the medications from the new patients unless supported by any evidence. Please note, it may take few weeks for your medical records to come to us from your previous doctor.

If you have no documents available you will have to make appointment to see the doctor to get your medications.

FACILITIES FOR OUR DISABLED PATIENTS:

There is a step free flat level (wheelchair friendly) entry to the surgery door from the car park.

We have WC facilities suitable for patients with disabilities.
