 How to Register

If you wish to register as a patient at our practice, please complete the forms available to download below. We have a dedicated registration clerk who is here to ensure that your registration forms are completed correctly and to answer any questions you may have.

When you come in to register with us you will be asked to show proof of identity (i.e. a driving license or passport) and something that shows your address (such as a utility bill). If you are unable to provide either of these items please speak to our registration clerk who will be able to discuss this with you.

Anyone wishing to register with us must provide two forms of identification – one item to prove identity and one item to prove residency. All documentation provided must be current i.e. dated.

1. Proof of Identity: The person registering must provide a photographic ID. All proof must include the full name and be up to date.

We accept one of the following items:
1 Passport
2 Driving Licence including photograph
3 Identification Card including photograph
4 Visa including photograph

2. Evidence of Identity: Evidence that you live at the address you have
stated on the registration form. This must be in a typed and official format.
Documents must be up to date and include your full name and full address.
We accept one of the following items:

1 Utility Bill (including Mobile Phone)
2 Tenancy Agreement
3 Mortgage Statement
4 Bank Statement
5 Payslip
6 Driving Licence (showing current address)
7 Official UK Benefits paperwork i.e. Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support etc.

Please ensure you provide one item from each of the lists above.

All patients, including children, will be registered with a allocated named, accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. This is referred to as your Named GP.  You should be informed of your Named GP when you register but you can also check who this is with any member of staff at any time.  We encourage you to see your Named GP where possible, particularly for on-going problems, so we can provide you with better continuity of care.  If he/she is fully booked, you can ask for an appointment with another Doctor or a Minor Illness Practitioner.  We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests to change Named GP.

Transferring your Records

GP2GP – What is it?

GP2GP enables new patients’ electronic health records to be transferred safely, securely and quickly from their previous practice. Typically the record will be filed into your new medical record within 24 hours by a member of the administration team. The GP2GP process will only take place if your previous practice has the function enabled on their system. If the function is not available at their end; your medical records will be transferred manually and securely via NHS England. We can however request a summary from your previous practice if you have an urgent health need. In order for us to do this you will need to provide signed consent. Please collect a consent form from reception.
