New Patient Registration
We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
Please complete a GMS1 form for each individual applicant for registration. Please also complete a Patient Registration Questionnaire if you are 16 years old or over. If you are registering a child please complete the Children's Registration Form instead.
All Borough Birth Registrations have been closed which means new parents are unable to obtain a birth certificate.
Newborn babies can be registered at a GP Practice without a birth certificate.
A newborn baby can be registered with the details provided in the Red Book issued by the Midwife team at hospital.
Registering online during Covid-19
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Practice is asking patients not to visit us unless they have a face-to-face appointment with a clinician.
We are accepting new patients' registration forms online rather than in person. You can fill in the forms at home and email them to us when complete.
All new patients need to complete:
- the GMS1 Family Doctors Service form.
- the New Patient Questionnaire (or the Children's Questionnaire for children under 16 years of age).
Both completed forms can be sent to:
Alternatively you can print them off and send them to us via the post, or through our letter box at the Practice.
If you are unable to access the forms online please contact us and we can send paper copies to you.
It can take up to two week for the registration process to be completed.
We recommend that patients who have regular medication be supplied by their current GP before leaving that Practice to join ours.
The Practice Boundary rules are still in effect:
We are no longer taking on new patients from outside our catchment area.
Patients who move out of the practice area will be asked to register with another GP nearer to their address.
In accordance with local guidelines all patients must provide two proofs of their identity when registering, e.g. birth certificate, marriage certificate, driving license, passport, wage slip or NHS card. We will ask you to complete a registration form and a questionnaire to collect important medical data.
Please complete a copy of the GMS1 form and a copy of the New Patient Questionnaire for each individual registering. Both Questionnaire forms can be downloaded below, either in PDF or MS Word document format.

If you move outside the practice area it will be necessary for you to find a doctor in your new area.
