Registering at the Practice
To register you will need to complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire which are available to collect from either surgery. The forms are also available to download and print below.
Bring the completed forms to reception together with two items of identification, which should be:
- Photographic ID e.g. Passport or driving licence
- Proof of address e.g. Rent book or utility bill.
Once your forms and identity have been checked by reception, you will be offered a new patient health check. This appointment should last no longer than 20 minutes and it includes a height, weight and BP check, and health/lifestyle advice.
Sometimes it can take up to 3 months to receive your notes from your old practice, but you will be able to access our services straight away.
You will be registered with a named GP and informed of this at registration. You are free to see any of the doctors or nurses at the practice.
If English is not your first language, the practice has access to interpreters. Please inform reception staff and this assistance can be provided.
Our Catchment Area
Please contact the practice to check whether you fall in within our catchment area.
You will need to find a practice nearer to your address if you are outside the catchment area. This also applies for patients who are already registered and move address.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
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.
