Registering with the Practice
When you attend the Practice to register you will be asked to complete a GP registration form, new patient questionnaire form, and NHS Entitlement form, these must be completed before you see the Doctor,
Please present all completed forms at the Practice, where the receptionist will offer you a new patient appointment with the Nurse or HCA. Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. We will ask you for proof of identity (see below). (Medical Cards are not accepted as proof of identity).
If you default from your new patient appointment and do not in form the reception staff you will be refused acceptance on to the Practice list.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away, if this is the case, simply choose another GP in your local area or you may not be entitled to NHS treatment.
