New patients

Steps to New Patient Registration

In order to register with us you need to:
Step 1 
Confirm that you are still within the practice's catchment area 
Each practice has a catchment area within which they can accept new patients.

Please use this tool below to check if you are in the catchment area, simply enter your postcode and press "Check if postcode is in Catchment Area"

Step 2 
Complete Registration Form and New patient health questionnaire 
The registration form asks you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, previous address and doctor. This information helps the NHS locally to trace your medical records and send them to us.

The New Patient Health Questionnaire asks you for some basic, lifestyle and allergy questions, so we can provide the best service possible from the start.

Please Note 
The new patient registration form is a legal document and needs to be

  • filled in,
  • printed off,
  • signed
  • and brought to the practice

The form is not electronically sent back to the practice, it is merely completed on screen. Without a correctly completed and signed form the practice can not proceed to register you as a patient.

In order for you to register at the practice, we ask that you provide proof of identity and of residence in our practice area. However, if it is not possible to provide proof of these documents, please contact the surgery to discuss.  Click here for details of the documents we can accept.
