How to Register as a Patient
Patients will only be accepted if they reside in the practice area.
If you have a medical card please bring it to the surgery; if not, please call into the surgery and pick up the registration forms for completion. We will need to see proof of address and identification. We will also ask you to complete a “New Patient Questionnaire”.
How to see your Doctor
Patient records are now computerised therefore you can see a doctor at any of our three sites if necessary. You may like to see the same doctor on each visit so that you get to know each other; we shall try to arrange this, but unfortunately, this may not be possible at short notice.Sometimes you will be asked if you would like to see a doctor other than one of the partners. This doctor will either be a locum who is helping us when we are busy or a general practitioner registrar. Appointments are available to book via our Reception desk, telephone or through our online booking system. To use our online service you need to complete a registration form.
