New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you may register at reception by filling in our new patient registration form. You will need to provide two forms of personal identification; one to prove who you are - this would normally be some form of photo identification (such as a passport or driving licence); the other, to prove where you live (this could be a utility bill or a bank statement.
If you have a new baby, bring their NHS number (obtainable from Child Health or the Maternity Ward) or red book.
You will be registered with a named GP, this is your registered GP, but you have a right to ask to see a different doctor, if you wish. Please ask at reception if you are unsure which GP you have been allocated.
Please note that consent to contact via mobile phone (phone call or SMS) will be assumed if no other option is marked on the registration form or when the mobile phone number is provided to the practice.
If you are taking any kind of medication, please make an appointment to see your new doctor as soon as possible to ensure you can continue to receive the medication.
We do not exclude patients from the practice on grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin or disability, sexual orientation, religion or religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.

Transferring your Electronic Health Record
Your GP practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format. Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.
If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic health record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP.
