New Patient Registration
We would ask patients, where possible, to come to the surgery between 09:30 and 17:00 to register to avoid the busy peak times at the start and end of the day.
Your registration will be with the partnership. However, you have the right to express a preference for an individual GP. You may indicate this on the ‘application to join form’. However, please be aware that some of the GPs only work part time and not all of the GPs provide every service you may require. Your request, if made, will be entered onto the computer registration template as your preferred doctor.
Please complete a GMS1 form, Summary Care Record Factsheet, EPS Nomination Form and New Patient Questionnaire before coming to the surgery:
These forms are for pre-registration and convenience. You will still need to call in to the Surgery, either at 25 Mill Road or Staff Health Centre, to sign the forms and to show us your forms of identity.
Please try to obtain your NHS number before registering, as this will make the registration process much easier. You can find this on your NHS medical card, or alternatively your current GP will be able to give it to you. You will also need to bring proof of your address to the practice when you register such as a tenancy agreement or utility bill.
If you wish to register for the on-line facility, please provide originals of photographic identification along with a recent letter with identification of your name and full address for security purposes. Patients are to provide photocopies of these two documents along with the originals to scan into your records.

If you have never registered with a GP in the UK before, we would need to verify your identity before we can register you. Please contact reception to find out what forms of ID are accepted.
