Please ask reception if you wish to register as a patient, they will be be able to advise you if you live in our catchment area see map. It would be helpful, but not essential, if you can provide us with your ‘medical card’ when you apply to register as this will help speed up the process.
For the surgery to offer quality healthcare it is important that we obtain essential medical information about you and so request that all patients over 5 years attend a ‘new patient check’ as soon as possible after registration.
These checks are undertaken by one of our practice nurses or Health Care Assistants, who will obtain a brief medical history from you as well as recording your blood pressure, height and weight. You will also be asked to provide a urine sample for routine testing. It would be helpful if you can bring a list of any current medication you are taking.
You will be nominally registered onto the medical list of a named GP, however this is for administrative purposes only and you are free to see whichever GP you wish. For continuity, we would recommend that patients try and stay with a particular GP especially if the condition is long term.
