How to register

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with the practice call into the surgery and one of our receptionists will explain the process to you. Your registration will be with the practice and you can see the GP of your choice. Before registering we will need to see 2 forms of ID and one of these must show your current address.

Named GP

All patients have an allocated named GP. Your named GP is responsible for your overall care at the practice. You can contact reception to find out who is your named GP and if you wish to change your named GP we will make reasonable efforts to accomodate your request.

Changing your details

If you change your name, address or telephone number please let us know as soon as possible. You can inform us by telephone, fax, e-mail (use our contact form) or in person.

Changing to another practice

You have the right to register with any doctor of your choice elsewhere, subject to that doctor’s acceptance. Once you have registered elsewhere we will promptly forward all of your medical records.

Zero Tolerance Policy

The practice operates a Zero Tolerance Policy and any patient who is violent or abusive to our staff will be removed from the practice list.
