When you first register you will be asked to make an appointment for each member of your family with our healthcare assistant which will include a simple health check and give us an opportunity to take some brief details of your medical history.
You can arrange this appointment either in person at the time of registering or by telephoning the Surgery on 01769 573101. Please tell the receptionist that you need a “New Patient Check” so that you are given a double appointment which allows us sufficient time to get to know you. Please also bring a urine sample (bottles are available from the Reception Desk).
It is IMPORTANT that you try to see us as soon as you can after registering so that we can meet you and take your medical history whilst awaiting the arrival of your notes from your previous practice.
We firmly believe in preventing disease and promoting health. For this reason we often ask about lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and smoking, as well as dealing with whatever problems you have come about. We are willing to help you lose weight, stop smoking and advise about exercise, so please ask for details.
Please see the Pre-registration tab above.
Medical treatment is available from the day of registration
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you know of a patient who may have difficulties explaining their symptoms to a doctor or nurse - we have access to a Language Line Translation Service.
This can be used whilst the patient is in the consulting room by using the telephone to access an interpreter who will assist the patient to explain their symptoms and enable the doctor to treat the patient and advise them accordingly.
If you wish to register click on the link below to open the form. When you come to the surgery for the first time, bring this form and some form of identification, preferably a 'photo driving licence' or a passport. If you have neither of these - an official letter or utility bill which includes your name and current address will be acceptable.
New Patient Registration Form
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can sometimes take up to 8 weeks for us to receive your medical records envelope. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
