You may register online. Click on the image below to register for this service or login.
Please note that you are required to provide certain items of information when you register. These include your NHS number, place of birth, current address and previous doctor. If you do not provide these details we are unable to register you. We have a computer link with the CCG and if any of the required details are missing the registration will be rejected.
- Check that you are living within the practice area. If you are unsure of this please speak to one of our receptionists.
- You will need to provide your NHS card as this contains important information especially your NHS number. If you do not have a card we will ask you to complete a form. It is essential that you have your NHS number. If you do not know what this is, contact your previous GP practice and they will be able to give you the number. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ACCESS TO A CENTRAL COMPUTER SYSTEM TO FIND OUT YOUR NHS NUMBER.
- You must give your place of birth. If you were born in London you must state the area eg Islington or Lambeth.
- Bring in proof of your current address, for example a utility bill, council tax bill or bank statement.
- We will also ask you to complete a health questionnaire. The staff will ask you to weigh and measure yourself and to provide a urine specimen. The staff will help you take a blood pressure reading. If this is all done when you register we will not have to call you back for a health check.
How To Register
Please come to the surgery and complete
- the NHS patient registration form,
- the adult or child health questionnaire, including the alcohol sheet,
- the ethnicity and first language questionnaire
- the information on your Summary Care Record (you will need to request an opt out form if you do not wish your details included in the Summary Care Record).
If you wish to register with us from another practice and you are having ongoing treatment, it is really helpful for us to have a summary print-out from your previous doctor. Please request this. This is because we do not get your records immediately and for continuity of care this will be important.
If you are going to be in the area for a short time we may only be able to see you as a temporary resident. Our staff can advise you.
New Patients From Abroad
If you have come from overseas there is no automatic right to free treatment under the NHS. The rules are complicated and depend on your normal country of residence and the purpose of your stay. Please ask our staff for advice. Be aware that we may charge a fee for overseas residents in some cases. If you have come to the UK to work or study we will need proof of this. We will require you to bring your passport so we can check that you are eligible for NHS treatment. This includes people coming from countries with a reciprocal agreement.
