New Patient Registration

Everyone is welcome in general practice. You do not need proof of ID, address, immigration status or an NHS number in order to register.

However it might help if you have one or more of the following:

  • register_nowPassport
  • Driving licence
  • Birth Certificate
  • Rough sleeper's identity badge

If you're homeless, you can give a temporary address such as a friend's address or day centre.

Please register online if you move into, or are living in our practice area, you will be asked to provide two forms of identification, both confirming your home address, and complete a registration form for yourself and for members of your family.  This will enable us to request your medical records from your previous practice. 

This process can take a number of weeks until we receive your records so we ask that you make an appointment for a new patient health check with one of our practice nurses.  This is a 15 minute appointment that will involve taking your height, weight, blood pressure and any relevant medical history.
