To register as a patient with the practice, you must be resident within the practice area (see map). When you call into the surgery to register, you will be given a registration form and a new patient questionnaire to complete. You will also be handed a practice booklet. Please try to complete the questionnaire as accurately as possible as it can often take time for your medical notes to be transferred to us from your previous practice.
All new patients are required to prove who they are and where they live. A piece of photographic identification (e.g. passport or driving licence) and evidence to confirm the address (e.g. utility or Council tax bill) will suffice. For children under 16 the birth certificate and / or passport is preferred. Original documentation must be seen but will be returned to you immediately once verification checks have been undertaken.
British Citizens Who Have Moved Abroad

Leaving the UK
If you leave the UK for more than 3 months your name will be removed from the list of registered patients.
