How to Register

Patients can register at the practice if they are in our catchment area (see below).

Please download and complete the below forms:

If you are transferring from another UK practice you simply need to complete the forms and bring them to the surgery with the required ID. Please view the full list of ID that that you will need to provide. We will then contact you to attend a new patient appointment.

If you wish to discuss registering at this Practice please contact the Registrations Administrator on 01234 221973.

This is a group practice and your name is registered with the practice and not with an individual GP Partner. If you would like to express a preference of practitioner this can be recorded on your computer notes, but we cannot guarantee that you will always be able to see your preferred GP.
