How to Register with a GP
New Patient Registration
It can take several weeks to obtain your medical records from your previous doctor. Therefore, you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and be offered a health screen examination with a Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.
Please make sure you attend the initial appointment, this will give your doctor some background information should you become ill.
Named Accountable GP
All patients including children now have an allocated, named accountable GP - this is now recorded on every patients records.
This does not mean you have to see your named GP, you can still see any GP or Nurse Practitioner in the practice as before.
If you wish to see a particular GP then you may have to wait longer to see your preferred choice. Should you wish to know who your accountable GP is, then please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
If you have a preference to a particular GP, the practice will make reasonable effort to accommodate this.
