New Patient Registration

You can make initial inquiries by telephoning the Practice on 01942 807600 following which, if you decide to register with the Practice, you will be asked to call in to surgery to collect the necessary paperwork that will allow you to register with the Practice.  You may also use the link on this website entitled 'Register Now' but this will only indicate your initial interest in registering with the Practice;  in order to complete your registration, there will be more paperwork presented to you by Reception staff, therefore, please follow any submission you make via the link with a telephone call to Reception staff on 01942 807600You will be required to supply us with your National Health Number (please note this is not the same as your National Insurance Number) - this can be seen on your current medical card (if you hold one) or you can obtain it from your current GP;  you should also provide proof of ID by producing one photo ID and one other form of ID such as utility bill with your name/address on it.

Upon registering with the Practice, anyone over the age of five years will be extended the opportunity to undergo a new patient medical.  Although a new patient medical is not a mandatory requirement for registration purposes, as a Practice we would encourage you to avail yourself of this check as it provides you with the opportunity to meet with Susan Parr, Practice Nurse, who will discuss any previous medical problems you may have had, gain details of any repeat medication(s) you are currently taking, ascertain whether you belong on any disease registers (such as diabetic, chronic heart disease, thyroid register(s)) and arrange any necessary follow-up/referral by/to outside agencies appertaining to such registers.  The medical will also extend you the opportunity to have a blood pressure check, a cardio-vascular risk assessment and generally allows the Practice to gain information on you which may prove helpful at a later date.

An appointment for a new patient medical takes approximately twenty minutes but proves an ideal opportunity to meet with some of the Practice staff/familiarise yourself with procedures etc.
