Registering as a New patient
We have an open list and welcome new requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. The practice boundary map shows the rough boundaries of our practice area. New patients must live within these boundaries to be able to register with us. Because of the fluid nature of our practice boundary there is a chance that we may not be able to accept you as a patient - we will check eligibility when you come in to register. We will also ask for proof of residence that you live within the practice boundary.
All patients wishing to join the practice should come into reception and make an appointment for a new patient medical check. Please be aware that no discrimination will be made in regard to race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or on grounds of disability or medical condition. Your medical records can sometimes take a while to follow you to a new practice and so this new patient consultation helps us to get to know your medical needs as soon as possible.
If you live within the practice area and wish to register, please complete either your medical card or print off and complete the new patient registration form and return it in person to the surgery.

You will also need to fill out a GMS1 form which can be obtained from the reception desk or downloaded here.
If you fall ill while away from home you can be seen as an 'immediately necessary patient'. You can receive treatment under this arrangement for up to 14 days.
You could also consider calling NHS 111 if you urgently need medical help or advice, but it's not a life-threatening situation. You can also call NHS 111 if you're not sure which NHS service you need.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your name, address, home telephone number, mobile number or email address, please remember to inform the Health Centre. This may be done either by visiting the practice or by phoning us on 01903 843400.
