Anyone who lives in the practice area can register with the Practice. To register you can attend during our opening hours to complete a registration form. We will ask you for proof of identity and address and we may ask you to attend for a new patient health check with the practice nurse.
You can download a GMS1 registration form and a new patient health check form. If you do not live within the practice area you can find a local GP at NHS Choices.
We advise that all students should register with a GP at the beginning of the first term. If you are at a college close to the practice then you may be able to register with us as a National Health Service patient.
The practice is now required by the government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
Patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the practice. If you would then like to change your named accountable GP, please inform Reception who will do this for you.
