We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
New Patient Registration
This surgery does not issue repeat (on-going) Benzodiazepines or Z-drug prescriptions. Patients who are taking this type of medication and wish to register with us will be offered a gradual reduction programme. Patients taking regular Benzodiazepines or Z-drugs will be asked to attend a medication review with the GP where a reduction programme will be agreed.
Patients will be provided with support to stop taking these medications.
Agreement with this policy is a strict requirement for registration with the practice.
This policy follows national guidance to ensure the safe use of these medications.
You can register by either:
- Completing the online patient registration form and patient health questionnaire (adult)
- Completing a form available from reception.
- downloading and printing a registration form to complete by hand and bringing it to the clinic.
If possible, please offer proof of ID (passport or driving licence), and proof of address (utility bill) by either attaching them to the online application or bringing them into the clinic.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse. You will have a brief medical.
The services available to you will be explained, along with how to book, amend or cancel appointments.
If you are not registered with the clinic, you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.
If you are not registered but need treatment at the clinic, you will need to complete a temporary registration form.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our practice.
