New Patient Registration

We are currently accepting new patients

How to register

We can only accept new patients who live in our practice area. You can register by completing a registration form which can be obtained from the practice. When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see either the practice nurse for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date. Please  ensure that you bring in proof of your address when registering  This  can be in the form of a recent utility bill or bank statement

Instructions on what to do with the registration form

If you want to join the practice please complete a registration form which can be can be picked up from reception. Please bring the completed form along to reception with your medical card if you have it. The information on the medical card will speed up the process of getting your records from your previous practice. Once you have been accepted as a patient your medical records will be transferred to us and a new medical card will be sent to your home address. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.
