How to register with a GP surgery

Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery.

You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
To register with the practice each patient will need to complete a general medical services form (GMS1) available from Reception and bring in their medical card if they have one. These official documents give the practice the authority to request their medical records from their previous GP via the Health Authority.

We will also require a questionnaire for each member of the family who wish to register with the practice. This is included in the new patient registration pack available from Reception.

New patients (over 16 years old) are also invited to attend a new patient health check with one of the practices nurses within six weeks of their initial request to register with the practice.  This health check usually takes approximately twenty minutes and covers general health as well as an opportunity to discuss any specific medical concerns you may have including prescribed medication.
