All patients are allocated a named GP when registering with the practice. The named GP takes overall responsibility for a patient’s healthcare, though they may not be the GP who sees the patient on a regular basis. Patients can request to see a particular GP or other clinician, but that person may not be available at a convenient date and time. If that is the case, patients will be offered an alternative appointment with a fully qualified and appropriate clinician.
Please be aware that it may not be possible to see a Clinician of your choice and at a date and time convenient to you. The practice has a wide range of clinicians who are able to treat you and we ask for your co-operation and understanding if we are unable to provide exactly what you may want. Our priority is to provide you with the best possible care depending on your health needs and the availability of clinicians, and you may be offered an appointment with a different Clinician to what you have requested. We ask that every patient shows the same level of respect and courtesy which they would like themselves, to our receptionists who are trying to assist you.
To register please print off and complete the form below or collect one from reception at either surgery. You need to provide as much information as possible on the registration form to help us ensure you get the best possible care from the start. This should inlude your NHS number, which you can obtain from your previous practice or it should be on any letters you have been sent from your previous practice.

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). Further information can be seen under the link "Summary Care Records" on the left hand side.
Once completed the forms need to be returned to the surgery together with confirmation of identity (i.e. driving licence/passport/birth certificate) and proof of address (i.e. recent utility bill, tenancy agreement or similar) where you have these items available. We will not refuse to register you at the Practice if you don’t have proof of ID and address, but it helps us to ensure that we have accurate and up to date information.
If you are already on medication and / or treatment when you join the practice please ensure that we have full information about those items, so that we can ensure that you have what you need when you need it.
At the same time as you register we will also look to register you for the Patient Online Service. This will enable you to book various appointments, request repeat medication, and view your health record (including test results) from the comfort of your home. This service is available 24 hours a day.
