The practice is currently accepting new patients.
If you wish to register with the practice, please firstly check the map on the ‘Practice Boundary’ page under the ‘New Patients’ tab at the top of this page, to ensure that you live within our catchment area. If you live within our catchment area, please contact the surgery to make an appointment for a ‘New Patient Medical’. This is a 20 minute appointment with one of our Healthcare Assistants. The purpose of this appointment is to allow us to understand your past medical history to allow all our healthcare professionals to provide you with the best possible care, as it can take a long time for your medical records to arrive from your previous surgery. This is not a process administered by ourselves but by NHS England, we have no control over how long it takes for your medical records to arrive.
All patients registering for the surgery must complete a ‘GMS1’ form and, ideally, provide both photo ID and a proof of address*. The GMS1 is a standard NHS form known as the ‘Family doctor services registration’ form. This form can be obtained from the surgery once you have made an appointment for a New Patient Medical. We request you either collect practice specific paperwork prior to your appointment or arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment to allow you enough time to complete it prior to your appointment – we are endeavouring to publish this form on our website to allow you to complete it in advance of your appointment.
*We can accept the following ORIGINAL documents as a proof of address:
- Bank Statement / Credit Card Statement / Utility Bill (Gas / Electric / Water / Landline Telephone**) – these must be dated within the last three months for them to be acceptable.
- Mortgage Statement / Council Tax Statement / Official correspondence from HMRC – these must be dated within the last 12 months for them to be acceptable.
- Photocard driving license (please be aware that if you are registering for GP Online Services, we can only accept a photocard driving license as a photographic ID OR proof of address, NOT both - you would need to provide either an additional photographic ID or an additional proof of address for us to complete your GP Online Services registration)
**Please note we are unable to accept Mobile Phone bills as a proof of address. Similarly we are unable to accept broadband / television subscription (e.g. Sky / BT / Virgin Media etc.) bills.
