Register as a New Patient
PLEASE NOTE: For legal reasons you must register IN PERSON, bringing with you your proof of your address.
You can speed up this registration process by downloading the registration documents below.
All newly registered patients will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire and invited to attend for a “new patient” check-up/assessment with one of our nurses.
It is our practice policy to allow patients to choose whichever doctor they wish to attend although you will be allocated a named GP when you join the practice.
Continuity of care works best if you try to stay with the same doctor for a particular medical issue.
Whenever possible you will be seen on the day you request providing the doctor is available.
Our boundary includes the new estates of Kingshill Grange and Hughenden Quarter. Patients living in the Kingshills and Holmer Green are currently being registered at our Prestwood site.
Change of Personal Details
If you move house or change your name or telephone number please let us know by telling Reception or writing to us. It is very important that we are able to contact you.
Downloadable Registration Forms
If you are within our catchment and wish to register you can download the registration forms opposite.
When you have completed all of the details bring it to the surgery.
Try to arrange this well in advance of your first appointment so that we can get your details onto the computer system.
You will need to bring proof of address (such as a utility bill in your name) and ID for those aged 16 and over.
For children under 4 years of age, please bring their red book / proof of vaccinations.
Obviously, simply completing the form does not complete or guarantee your registration with the practice. It is necessary for us all to follow the full and proper process.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
