How to register

If you live in our Practice area and would like to register with us, you can register by completing an on-line form using the link below or collecting a paper copy from our reception staff.

Register with the practice

When you register we will ask you to make an appointment to see one of our practice nurses for a new patient health check. This will make sure our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms etc) are up-to-date. 

If you have a preference for a particular GP please mention this when you register and we will try and accommodate your wishes.

Once you have been accepted as a patient your medical records will be transferred to us. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving though it may be courteous to do so.

Safe Surgeries

Everyone in the UK has the right to free care from a GP.

If you don’t have proof of ID or address, you can still register. Immigration status or nationality don’t matter - reception won’t ask for immigration documents and won’t share your information with the Home Office unless serious crime is involved.
