2. Complete a registration form

Please complete a registration form giving us your past medical history, allergies, medications, etc

We scan these forms in to your medical record, so they must be completed in BLACK PEN.

You will find one in your hall welcome pack, can obtain one from our recption or you can download one below.

The NHS introduced a new form on 2/10/17 & we are currently having to ask people to complete our form & the new form whilst we are awaiting more details on the process. We hope to streamline this very soon.


3. Complete an alcohol questionnaire

Again, you will find one in your hall pack, can obtain one from our reception or can download one below.


4. Bring the forms to reception in person

NHS regulations say that you must bring the forms to us in person to register.

Don't forget to bring both of the forms with you!

At busy times, we may focus our attention on patients who already registered with us. If we are unable to help you at that particular time, you will be invited to return at another time.


5. Wait for your registration to process

We will submit your registration, but this is not an instantaneous process.

Typically it takes around one working day to process, but due to Government changes to the PPSA in 2016, we are at the moment experiencing delays as they are failing to approve all registrations promptly. We apologise for this, but sadly this is outside of our control.

Once your registration has completed, we can then book you an appointment.

If you have chosen not to register with a GP and wish to see a clinician on the same day, please use the walk in centre (they accept patients who do not have a local GP).

It takes days to weeks for us to receive a NHS number for patients who have not previously been registered with the NHS. We often get asked by overseas patients to confirm their NHS number, but please be patient whilst the NHS conducts its counter-fraud checks & allocates you an individual number. The NHS no longer sends out confirmation cards or letters with your NHS number.
