The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it takes 6-8 weeks to receive your medical records from your previous doctors once registered we would ask you to make a New Patient appointment with the Healthcare Assistant.
You are welcome to register here as long as you are in our catchment area. This can be confirmed from your address we ask that when registering you prove your address by bringing a utility bill in your name and address. We also require one form of photographic ID.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.
