New Patients

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. When you register you will be allocated a named GP who will be responsible for the co-ordination of your care.  However, you are able to choose to see any of the doctors when making an appointment. We try to accommodate your choice, but please be aware that our doctors do not work every day of the week.

New patients are asked to complete a thorough questionnaire to advise the doctor of their medical history.  If you are on any regular medication you may be asked to make an appointment to discuss this with a doctor. This is also a good time to ask for help with any particular medical, social or psychological difficulty.

Your medical records from your previous GP Surgery will be requested and transferred to us but this can take several weeks. However, medical treatment is available from about 2 weeks after we receive your completed registration form.

Please contact our Patient Services Team for further information, either by calling our main number 01626 208020 or dropping into the surgery and asking our Reception staff. They will also be able to provide you with a hard copy registration form to fill in.

You can also complete the form by clicking on the relevant link below and either printing off to drop in or post to us.

We have three registration forms to ensure we are collecting the right information for the age group. Those aged over 13 are usually deemed able to manage their healthcare themselves, unless a GP determines they are not competent to do so. A parent or guardian may help complete the form but it must be signed by the patient and if they want a parent or guardian to assist with their healthcare then the additional Third Party Consent form must be completed as well. They do have the right to manage their healthcare themselves though and do not have to agree to Third Party Consent. They may also opt for anyone granted Third Party Access to be removed from having access to their records at any time.
