To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
New Patient Registration
In order to register, it is helpful if you can bring us your medical card. If you do not have one, you will need to bring details of your previous GP and the address you were living at when you were registered there. We will also need your present address. (Please note, if you are a member of a college, the college is now your present address.) You will be required to complete a registration form, a new patient questionnaire and a data sharing choice form.
We would encourage you to book an appointment with our practice nurse for a new patient health check within four weeks of joining the practice.
Your registration will be with the practice rather than with a particular doctor, although you will be given a 'named GP'. Dr Drury will be the named GP for patients whose surname begins with the letters A - L, and Dr Kirkaldy will be the named GP for patients whose surname begins with the letters M - Z. Named GPs have been introduced to ensure all patients have a dedicated individual who is responsible for their care. However you are always free to choose whichever doctor you would like to see.
It is important that you inform us if you change your name, address or telephone number.
Please be aware, you may be asked for proof of UK residency and entitlement to NHS Services.
It is not possible to register online, as you must sign the three registration forms below to confirm that the details are correct before you can be registered.
However you may print off all three forms so that you can complete and sign them at home, and then bring them in person to the practice.
The first form we need is the Registration form:
As part of registering we ask you to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. This is the second form that we need in order to process your registration.
Your patient record is held securely and confidentially on our practice computer system but electronic sharing of your medical record may be necessary should you require treatment in hospital or elsewhere. You must choose to give, or withold, your consent to Data Sharing by completing the choice and consent form below. Your registration cannot be processed until we receive this third form.
We now allow patients to conduct many of their dealings with us online and you can even view your own medical record online too. To register for this service you also need to complete a form. You can complete this form online and then print it, sign it and bring it with you to the practice. We also need to see two forms of ID before we can grant you online access.
