Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area (see below) you may apply to register as a patient with us. Simply come to our reception and ask to register as a new patient, we will hand you registration forms for you to fill out and return to us.
Alternatively, you can download our registration forms online by completing the GMS1 and New Patient Practice Registration Form and handing the forms in at reception.
In both cases photo ID is required and we ask that you fill out your name exactly as it is printed on your passport.
Once registered, you will be invited to attend a new patient health check with the Practice Nurse. You may also be invited to attend a health check if you have an on-going health condition or if you are over the age of 75.
The practice has existing patients from a wide area to the south west of the city centre. However, we will now only accept new patient registrations from the area bounded by the roads on the map opposite. Simply type in your post code to see if you are within the practice boundary.
Register for Online Services
Patients registered with our practice are also able to have 24 hour secure access via the internet to make appointments, order their repeat prescription and view some aspects of your medical records. You can cancel appointments online even if you didn't make it online! This then frees up that appointment for someone else who needs it.

Out of Area Registration
As of January 2015, all GP practices in England may register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area. This means that you may be able to register with practices such as a practice near your work. For more information click here.
Ask reception if you feel that this might be an appropriate service for you. You will be asked to speak to a doctor who will discuss with you your options.
Named Doctor for all Patients
Following Government (NHS) requirements all patients have now been allocated a named doctor. This doctor will be responsible and accountable for coordinating the overall care you receive at our practice. We have always registered our patients with individual doctors, but patients can see any GP within the practice. This will continue – the doctor you see does not have to be your named doctor.
Your named doctor may not be available at all times, so sometimes your care will be overseen by another GP on duty; especially at short notice or if your needs are urgent.
We will inform you of your named doctor at the first appropriate interaction with our practice. If you wish to know who your named doctor is, please ask at reception – please don’t phone the practice for this information.
If you are unwell while away from home and need to see a GP, you can register with us as a Temporary Resident. As a temporary resident, we can see you for up to three months. This will allow you to be seen by our GP's and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. Your usual GP will be informed of any medical care you have received from contact reception on our surgery telephone number using OPTION 4 and the reception team will advise you accordingly. Please note that all telephone calls with the practice are recorded for training or monitoring purposes.
