Register with the surgery
Before filling out a registration form, check you are in our catchment area using the map and postcode checker opposite.
Find out which GPs you can register with on the NHS website.
To register with the surgery:
- visit reception from 8am to 6pm and collect a paper registration form
When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.
It is vital that all registration forms are completed fully to prevent delays in registration.
We also require:
- One form of photo ID – driving licence, passport, identity card
- One proof of address – utility bill, council tax letter, bank letter
Please note that we can only accept these as two separate forms of ID. For example, we cannot accept a driving licence for both the photo ID and proof of address.
We are currently working to process registrations within 10 working days.
When you are successfuly registered, you will recieve a confirmation text message including your accountable GP. Only once you have recieved this text can you book appointments.
Care During The Registration Process
We strongly encourage patients to continue to request any repeat medication from their previous practice to prevent them from running out before they can have an appointment with a GP at this surgery.
If this is not possible, emergency prescriptions can be requested via 111, either over the phone or online.
If you need any medical attention before registration, we recommend the walk-in clinic by Brighton station called Practice Plus.
They are open 8am-8pm, 7 days a week, and can be contacted on 0333 321 0946.
111 can also provide medical attention if you are not yet registered with a surgery.
Accessing someone else’s information
As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.
To requests proxy access, please collect a proxy access form from reception from 8am to 6pm.
Linked profiles in your NHS account
Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website.
The NHS website has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.
The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.
- Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
- Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
If you wish to change your accountable GP, you will need to write a request letter addressed to the practice manager. In the letter you will need to provide details of the GP that you currently have, which GP you would like to be changed to, and why.
