HOW DO I.... REGISTER WITH THE PRACTICE?
To register with the practice you must live within the practice boundary (see map page). You simply need to call the surgery to arrange an
appointment for a new patient medical. You will be asked to bring identification such as your medical card and/or other proof eg passport/driving licence, and evidence of your address. Provided all these
are in order and you are living within our practice boundary, you will be registered when you attend for your new patient medical. Patients are able to express a preference to see a particular doctor and we
will endeavour to comply, although this may not always be possible. If you move out of our practice area you will need to register with another practice.
If you are away from home and need medical attention you may consult a doctor in the area in which you are a temporary resident.
Visitors from other countries may also see a GP as a temporary resident (at the doctor’s discretion). There may be a charge if the country of origin is
not a member of the European Economic Area or does not have a health care agreement with the UK. Further details are available upon request.
Patient Preference Of Practitioner
Patients are registered with the practice, not a specific GP. Patients can therefore see any GP within the practice. All medical information is recorded on the computer,
and all GPs have access to this information. However, patients do have the right to express a preference of doctor, and these requests will be accommodated where possible.
HOW DO I.... CHANGE MY PERSONAL DETAILS?
If you change your name or address please let us know and if you are still within the practice boundary we shall be happy to keep you on our list.
