New Patient Registration
We welcome new patients to our list, our practice area covers IP3 and IP4.
Please ring reception on 01473 213261 to enquire about registering.
Due to excessive demand for our services we have a limit on how many patients we register a day. Please ring ahead to ensure that you can register on a particular day.
If your repeat medications are due you need to get these from your current GP before registering as they may take a while to process.
We register new patients between:
11am-5pm Tuesday- Friday
In order for your registration to be processed it is important that we have information regarding where you live, if you are not in our practice area we will not be able to register you.
In very rare circumstances if we are unable to determine your eligibility for NHS care we may not be able to register you.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
We do ask all patients to bring along some form of identification and proof of UK residency - this helps us to determine your eligibility for free NHS care. All new patients are offered the opportunity to have a new patient health check. This is your choice and will enable us to find out important information about you. However, your registration is not dependent upon this check being carried out. It is especially important for patients coming from overseas to provide information as there is no prior history with the NHS.
Things we need to know about you:
- Medications: We ask all new patients to bring along details of current medications, e.g. prescription slips or empty boxes. This is particularly important for patients who are from overseas and registering with the NHS for the first time.
- Immunisations: Please ensure that we have up to date details of any immunisations that you have had. We ask parents to bring along the details of their children's immunisations.
- Past medical history: We ask all new patients to bring along details of their past medical history. Do ask your previous doctor to help if you are unsure about the details. This is particularly important for patients who are from overseas and registering with the NHS for the first time; please note, we do need this information in English.
