Whilst we are open to accepting new patients, it is our current policy to give priority to patients who are new to the area. Patients who are already registered with a local GP and have access to primary care services can still apply to register, however as their need is much lower, they will be placed on our waiting list which is monitored and when a space becomes available, the surgery will contact the patient to see whether they still wish to join our surgery.
We have taken this decision in order to maintain a manageable workload and to safeguard our existing patients.
If you have recently moved to our practice area (see practice boundary map below), and would like to register with us, you will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. On the form you will be able to say which GP you would prefer to see, however you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP.
All new patients are required to complete a new patient health questionnaire and ethnic origin form and are invited to make an appointment with Angela or Vicky, our Healthcare Assistants. This will give us an opportunity to meet you and to obtain important information about any past and on-going health problems.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please let us know if you change your address/telephone number as soon as possible so that we can keep our records up to date. If you move outside the practice area, you will need to register with a new doctor. If you are in doubt, please ask at Reception.
