New Patient Registration

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. Our practice catchment area is shown below (click anywhere in the map to load the boundary). Unfortunately we are unable to accept registrations from patients whose address falls outside of the catchment:

Registration process

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. These forms are available at reception or can be downloaded below, printed out, filled in and returned:

You can also fill in both the GMS1 and the health questionnaire online – please see:

When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see either the practice nurse for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.

Need help finding your NHS Number?

​If you are registered with a GP practice, you will already have an NHS Number, a unique 10 digit code. A service is available from the NHS (https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/) that will send you a reminder of your NHS number. Alternatively,yYou should also be able to find your NHS Number on any letter or document you have received from the NHS, including prescriptions, test results, and hospital referral or appointment letters.

Change of Patient’s Personal Details

If you change your name, address or contact details (such as your telephone number or email address), please let us know as soon as possible so that we can update our records. If you are receiving treatment at a hospital it might also be a good idea to inform them of any changes so that both our records are consistent when we communicate with them.
