New Patient Registration
To register with our Practice you will need to complete a GMS1 form which is available on request from the reception staff. A current photo ID is also required ie passport or photo driving license. As a patient you register with the Practice and not a specific Doctor. However you may state a preference for a particular Doctor when completing the GMS1. We will try wherever reasonably practicable to make sure your consultation is with your preferred GP.
All patients wishing to register with the Practice are asked to have a consultation with the Practice Nurse after which you will be registered. This is helpful in obtaining a brief medical history before we receive your full medical record from your previous GP. This information is invaluable to us, for example if you require a repeat prescription or need any medical or insurance forms to be completed. Lack of this information could result in a delay in dealing with your request. The consultation also helps in keeping an up-to-date profile of you in our records. If you are on repeat medication you must see the doctor for the first time you need any repeat medication.
