Register with us as a New Patient

When you attend the Practice to register you will be asked to complete a GP registration form, and a new patient questionnaire form.

Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. We will ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below)

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the Practice boundary area.

We are welcoming new patient registrations now

We are using a new online service called Register with a GP surgery[] that makes it easy to register with this GP surgery.

Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper forms are still available if you need one.
