We are now registering new patients
To start the registration process please click the following link to complete our online registration form.
Any person wishing to register with the Practice will need to live within the catchment area. If you do not live in the catchment area, this will be assessed by the GP on an individual basis, who will decide whether the application is clinically appropriate. Patients registered outside of catchment will not be entitled to home visits, and also may affect other services such as Pharmacy deliveries.
Any person within the catchment area will be given a New Patient pack, which includes a New Patient questionnaire to complete, together with a GMS1 form, an ethnicity form, and a Practice leaflet.
The surgery will require proof of identity and address.

The Practice is an equal opportunities employer, and this also relates to treatment and registration of our patients. The Practice policy is to ensure that no person or persons, whether patients, visitors or employees, receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, marital status, disability, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or medical condition. Where a person in disabled the practice will attempt to comply with the duty to make reasonable adjustments. There is Disabled access to the building, plus disabled facilities.
The practice will do its utmost to ensure that all persons are treated fairly and that the practice environment is free from discrimination and harassment.
Any person already known to the practice may be refused if they are known to be abusive or violent.
The Practice follows best practice, therefore all children (i.e. under 18’s) need to be registered with maternal parent (i.e. mother – exceptional circumstances considered)
The final decision will be made by the GP. All patients accepted to the practice will need to attend surgery to see our Practice Nurse for a new patient check. (No new patient check is required for under 5’s).

SCR (Summary Care Record)
The SCR is an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. It can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system, involved in the patients direct care. This ensures that care in other settings is safer, reducing the risk of prescribing errors and also helps avoid delays to urgent care.
At a minimum the SCR holds important information about
Current Medication, Allergies and details of any previous bad reactions to medicine
Name, address, dob, and NHS Number of the patient.
If you do not wish to have such information disclosed you will need to click on the link and opt out, which you will need to send to the practice
