New Patients

Register as New Patient

When you register at the surgery you will be asked to complete a GMS1 form.  You will also be given a health questionnaire, which must be completed as fully as possible and returned with your GMS1 form.  

All new patients will also be required to produce proof of identity in line with NHS guidelines. A combination of one item of photo ID, together with one document containing the patients' current address.PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR REGISTRATION WITH THE PRACTICE WILL NOT BE COMPLETE UNTIL YOU HAVE VISITED THE PRACTICE WITH ID

NOTE: If you are a parent registering  your child, or are under 18 years of age please complete the health questionnaire but exclude the alcohol monitoring.  Please bring any immunisation history you have. 

Surgery Catchment Area

We can only accept new patients who live INSIDE our boundaries. Please click here to enter your postcode and check if you live within our catchment area. If you move to an address that falls outside of our boundary  you will need to register with another practice.  In order to be fair and equitable we are unable to make exceptions on an individual  patient basis.

Your address is outside of the catchment area.

Named Doctor

You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them.

For all our patients, Dr Lavanya Subbiah will be their named GP.

Dr Subbiah will have overall responsibility for the care and support our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.


Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
