We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
All Borough Birth Registrations have been closed which means new parents are unable to obtain a birth certificate.
A newborn baby can be registered with the details provided in the Red Book issued by the Midwife team at hospital.
We are accepting our Registration Forms (see below) via email whilst the Practice is closed to foot-traffic.
If an applicant 16 years of age and over downloads and completes their own forms (parents can complete the Children's form and GMS1 for those under 16) the documents can be emailed to the address BHCCG.PavilionSurgery@nhs.net where they will be processed in up to ten working days.
Normally we would ask for Photo-ID and a Proof-of-Address upon registering. If an applicant is able to photograph or scan their ID into a picture file (like a .jPeg) then we will use that ID.
If you are unable to supply ID we will just accept the forms at this time. We will revert to pre-Covid processes when the virus situation has changed sufficiently.The Practice Boundary rules are still in effect:
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 licence, passport, wage slip or NHS card. We will ask you to complete a registration form and a questionnaire to collect important medical data. Both forms can be downloaded below.

Some new patients will be asked to undertake a health check with a health care assistant.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
If you change your name, address or telephone number please let our receptionists know or inform us of the change via emis access online.
If you move outside the practice area it will be necessary for you to find a doctor in your new area.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
