New Patient Registration
We welcome new patients to the practice. You will be required to complete a health questionnaire, registration form and provide proof of ID/address. The forms can be collected at reception.
The hours between 11:30 – 15:30 are the best times for this as it is when it is least busy.
In order to register as a patient with the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area, which is clearly outlined in the catchment area below.
We do not accept any patients from outside this practice boundary.
Ideally, you will also need to show some documents to prove your name, address and eligibility to receive NHS care. Acceptable documents are listed below. Exceptions will only be made for those without an address, such as those homeless or seeking asylum.
Acceptable evidence for proof of legal name (originals only):
- birth certificate (if born in the UK);
- UK photo card driving licence;
- Home Office identity card.
Acceptable evidence for proof of address (originals only bearing the patient’s name and dated in the last three months and showing the address being registered):
- statement from a financial institution (bank, building society, credit card or mortgage lender);
- bill from a utility company (gas, electric, water or fixed line telephone provider);
- council tax bill;
- letter confirming entitlement to housing benefit, council tax benefit or tax credits;
- letter from the Home Office in relation to an application for asylum or appeal;
- letter from the educational establishment that you are currently attending.
Once registered, it is important to keep your contact details up to date in case we need to contact you. We occasionally need to change appointments or send letters to you and if you have moved and not told us this can cause problems. Any changes must be made in writing, and accompanied by a proof of address document as outlined above.
