New Patient Registration 

We are very happy to welcome patients who are new to the surgery, please be aware that to register fully you will need to provide proof of address and photo identification. We ask for this to ensure the security of your patient health record. Please contact our Practice Manager if you have any queries about this. Thank you. Due to current high demand to be registered at the practice you may be put on a waiting list and your application to join the practice will be dealt with as we have available new patient appointments

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.  As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the nurse and then the doctor.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
