New Patient Registration
We welcome new patients who wish to register with us and who live within our practice boundary. Requests to join the practice should be addressed to the receptionists who will give you the relevant information and forms to complete.In order to register at the practice you will need to submit 3 forms of identification, please see the list below (one document must be photo identification and 2 must confirm your address), for example:
- Driving Licence
- Utility Bill
- Bank/Building Society Statement(s)
- Mobile Phone Bill
- Letter from Benefits Agency

Once all forms are completed you are required to attend for a mandatory new patient medical examination with our Health Care Assistant, after which you will be registered at the practice.
Accountable Named GP for all Patients
From the 1st April 2015, all GP practices are required, by NHS England, to allocate ALL patients with a named accountable GP. Your named accountable GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care with other health professionals. However, your named GP does not take on 24-hr responsibly for your care; they will purely oversee the care that you receive. This does not mean that you have the right to see your named GP every time you book an appointment.
All patients can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP. If you would like to know your named GP, please contact the practice.
Change of Address/Details
If you move house or change any other details (e.g. name, telephone number), please let us know as soon as possible. It is essential that your GP has the correct up to date information in the event that he/she needs to contact you.
