Joining the practice is very simple. Just come along to either branch with the following documentation:
- Registration form (GMS1): this can be collected at reception, or downloaded and completed in advance if you prefer.
- Photo ID, such as your passport or driving license.
- Proof of your address (a Council Tax or utility bill would be ideal).
You will be asked to complete a New Patient History form and can download* this or collect it at reception. This provides us with important background medical history prior to your notes arriving at the surgery. [* Sorry but the download option is not currently available as new forms are under preparation – we hope to have these available online soon – 30/01/2020]
If you have a preference for a male or female doctor please make this known to the receptionist when you register.
You may be invited to a new patient appointment, particularly if you are on a lot of medication or have complex medical needs. Normally the GP will want to check and review your medication before we start to issue prescriptions.
