Registering as a Permanent Patient

If you would like to register with our practice please bring 2 forms of ID to the surgery, e.g medical card/utility bill/passport/driving license/letter with home address. It is not usual for children to need to do this (as if they have health needs they should see the GP).

I do not have my Medical Card?

If you do not have your medical card, you will need to complete form GMS1, you can do this when you visit, or download* a copy and bring the completed form with you.

Health Questionnaire

To help us with the registration process please download* and complete a health questionnaire.

On registering with the practice

You are asked to see a Practice Nurse within the first month of joining the practice to receive a medical check-up, blood pressure, etc, and are offered relevant advice on any aspect of your health.

* Available for download from the forms section on this page

The 'Usual Doctor' System

All patients, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice.  This is referred to as your 'Usual Doctor'.  You should be informed of your Usual Doctor when you register, but you can also check who this is with any member of staff at any time.  We encourage you to see your Usual Doctor where possible, particularly for ongoing problems, so we can provide you with better continuity of care.  If he/she is fully booked, you can ask for another doctor.  We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests to change Usual Doctor.

Temporary Residents

The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area (see map above) should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.

To register you will need to complete our Temporary Resident Registration form (GMS3) which is available from reception, or can be downloaded from the forms section on this page.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
