All patients registered at the Practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery, you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
If you would like to join the practice you should bring proof of address (Utility Bill, etc) and photo ID (Passport, Diriving Licence, etc) when you come to register. You will then be given a registration form and Patient Questionnaire to complete. After this is returned to the Practice, you will be given an appointment to see the Health Care Assistant for a New Patient Check, and this would complete the registration process. If you have regular medication, you'll need a review with a GP, before you can request repeat prescriptions.
Children 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf.
Disabled patient facilities are also available at this practice.
(Car park space, ramp, toilet etc).
