How to register

We welcome new patients to the practice.  In order to register with us you should be staying in the practice area for more than three months. 


During the Coronavirus pandemic we would encourage new patients to register online.

You can find out more about registering with a GP practice by visiting NHS Inform.


A receptionist will take your details when you come to the surgery.  It is helpful if you have as much information for us as possible e.g.

Telephone number and postcode

Name and address of your previous GP

If you have children under the age of 5 years, a note of all previous immunisations is required.

Government regulations state that newly registered patients over the age of 5 years are required to have a New Registration Health Check. When you register, the receptionist will make an appointment for you for a New Patient Health Check with the Practice Nurse, at a time convenient for you.  The health check will normally take 20 minutes. If you have any medical problems that you wish to discuss with the doctor, you will be seen within normal surgery hours.


Help train the doctors of the future

We have a Medical Student with us until 22 October 2021. Medical School students have the patient’s perspective at the centre of their medical training. Students are supervised at all times by  a health care professional – usually a doctor. By supporting their training programme you are helping our students to become better patient-centred doctors of the future.

If you have any concerns about being seen by a student, please contact a member of staff.
