Join the practice

If you would like to join the practice you should ideally bring proof of address (Utility Bill etc) and your NHS (National Health Service) number with you when you come to register. You will then be giving a registration form and Patient Questionnaire to complete. After this is returned to the practice you will be given an appointment to see the Health Care Assistant for a New Patient Check, and this would complete the registration process.

Children 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf.

We allocate every patient to a "usual GP" for administration purposes. This is a random assignment. Each GP has a patient list proportionate to the number of sessions they provide each week. We ask that except in extreme circumstances you stick with the "usual GP" that you are assigned to. As a patient, you have the right to express preference as to which GP you wish to see. However, if you require an appointment and your preferred GP is not available, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor. If you still wish to see your preferred GP you may have to wait longer.

We would kindly request that applications are submitted by 6pm to enable the registration process to be completed that day. Patients may need to return another day to complete the registration process for applications submitted after this time.

You can also visit the surgery and the above forms will be provided.

 

Your Named GP

The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore to do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.

We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.

You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
