New Patient Registration test

consultation_6As long as you permanently reside within our practice catchment area we will be delighted to welcome you as a patient. If you have your current medical card, please take it to the surgery with which you wish to register. If you do not have your medical card, we will give you a registration form to complete. This can be taken home for completion at your leisure if you prefer, but you should be aware that until the form has been processed by the practice you will not be registered with us. The registration forms can be completed on behalf of another person as long as they are a husband, wife or a blood relative. We regret that we are unable to accept forms completed on behalf of a partner or a common law partner.

At the time of registration, you will receive a practice leaflet which we hope you will find informative, this can also be accessed via the link at the bottom of this page. You will also be asked to complete a new patient health questionnaire. It is very important that a questionnaire is completed for everyone aged five and over. Please be as accurate as you can with the answers as it will help us to provide you with good medical care. Please be reassured, all information supplied is completely confidential.

In addition, as part of our registration procedure, we invite all new patients to attend a ‘New Patient Health Check’ with one of our practice nurses. This is an important opportunity for us to familiarise ourselves with your medical history and for you to ask any questions or discuss any concerns you may have. You will also be able to find out about us and the services we can offer you. If you would like to make an appointment, please speak to a receptionist and they will do their best to offer you an appointment that will fit into your schedule.

Once your registration process has been completed, it will probably take six to eight weeks for your full medical records to be forwarded to us from your previous practice, via the Central Records Department.

If you require any further information, please speak to a member of staff.

As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.

You may print off both the Registration Form and Registration Questionnaire below, please complete and sign them both and bring them in with you on your visit to the practice.  Please do not post them to us. BOTH REGISTRATION FORM AND QUESTIONNAIRE MUST BE COMPLETED IN ORDER TO COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION WITH THIS PRACTICE.
