When you attend the Practice to register you will be asked to complete a GP registration form, and new patient questionnaire form. These must be completed before you see the Practice Nurse, so it is advisable to attend at least 10 minutes before your appointment time, so that you can compete the information required.
The receptionist will offer you a new patient appointment. Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor.
Patients are advised to the read the NHS counter fraud declaration before signing the registration form.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Once you’ve been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the Practice.
Your medical records may take up to several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
If you default from your new patient appointment and do not inform the reception staff you may be refused acceptance on to the Practice list.
