How to register

If you live in our practice area (M25 or M45) and wish to register as a patient at our surgery then we need certain information from you and each member of your family so that we are able to trace your previous medical records.

You can register online by clicking on the GMS Registration Form and New Patient Questionnaire links below.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU COMPLETE AND RETURN BOTH FORMS AS WE CANNOT REGISTER YOU UNTIL WE HAVE ALL THIS INFORMATION.

A patient information booklet is also attached below which gives lots of relevant and useful information about our practice.

GMS1 Registration Form (Please ensure we have a contact telephone number)

New Patient Questionnaire

Practice Information Booklet

If you prefer, you can print off the GMS1 Registration Form AND the New Patient Questionnaire, then fully complete, sign and return to the surgery.

New patient checks

If you are aged over 40, have a chronic illness or are on repeat medication, you will need to book an appointment for a New Patient Check with the nurse before the registration process can be fully completed. If you are under 40 and otherwise healthy, a new patient check is not necessary, although you may still book in for one if you so wish. This is an opportunity for us to obtain important background medical history prior to your medical notes arriving.

Summary Care Record

You can choose to have a Summary Care Record (this will happen automatically when you register) or you can choose to not have a Summary Care Record (you will need to let the practice know by filling out and returning the opt out form below.

Out of area registrations

You may be aware of the current guidelines from the Government advising patients that it may be possible to register with a practice out of their area and outside the practices normal boundary. This scheme is entirely voluntary and there is no obligation on practices to participate.

Due to the current overwhelming demands on the practices limited resources and after careful consideration by all the partners, we have decided not to participate in this scheme and will not be accepting patients from outside our current practice boundary.
