The clinical staff work together as a team to treat illnesses, to provide help with health related problems, and to offer advice on staying healthy.  However, if you have a preference for a particular GP the practice will try to meet your choice although this cannot be guaranteed.  Please inform the receptionist of your preference when you register. 

How to register

To register as a patient, you will need to complete the Family Doctor Registration Form and the New Patient Questionnaire form and will need to bring in certain documents. You can download the forms and more information about the practice  below, or collect a registration pack from reception.  

You will need to come to the surgery to complete the registration process which will include bringing in some form of identification and evidence of your address.

Acceptable documentation includes your passport, a driving licence, utility bill, bank statement, NHS medical card, or a benefits letter to your current address. 

If you are registering a child under 5, please bring along his or her red book or a copy of the vaccinations received. A birth certificate can also be used as proof of a child’s identity, or a passport if they have one.

Health Information

On registration, new patients are asked to complete a surgery questionnaire.  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 receptionists will be able to explain monitoring procedures and refer you to the appropriate clinic.

If you take regular medication you will need to make an appointment, preferably to see the doctor you have been registered with.  

The doctor needs the opportunity to review with you, your medical history and medication before authorising your prescriptions.
