New Patient Registration
You, or your nominated representative in the case of children, disabled or infirm, can register with the Practice by completing the appropriate forms, which are available from reception. You can download the NHS Application Form [GMS1].
In accordance with current guidance to prove NHS eligibility, all new patients will need to attend the surgery with two forms of identification. This is required to reduce and prevent fraudulent attempts to obtain or misuse NHS care. Overseas visitors may be asked for additional information to prove NHS entitlement. One form of identity must ideally be photographic, such as:
- Drivers Licence
- Official ID card from a Public Services boy
- Student matriculation card (current year)
Other documents for proof of residency that are acceptable are:
- Recent utility bill (within the last 3 months)
- Council Tax document
- Television Licence
- Payslips (the last 2 months)
- Rent Book/agreement (Public Body or Private Landlord)
- Bank Statement (name and address section only)
- Solicitors Letter (clearly showing your name and address)
If you are unable to provide photographic evidence, then you must present one of the above and one of the following:
- Birth Certificate
- Marriage Certificate
- Divorce/Annulment Papers
NB: The above list is not exhaustive and staff are entitled to ask for further proof, if required. Please note you will not be registered with the Practice if you cannot provide the documents required to prove NHS eligibility.
All new patients are required to attend for a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date your registration is accepted. Please contact reception for further information.
To register with the Practice you must live within the Practice area (see Practice Boundary tab).
