New Patient Registration
You can register with the Practice when you move to the area by coming in and completing a Registration Form. Alternatively, you can download our New Patient Registration Form form, complete it and post it to us when you move:
- Please complete one form for each adult or child you wish to register.
- Please do not send it before you move as it may affect your registration with your current GP Practice.
Please note that we ask you to provide proof of your new address in the form of a Utility or Council Tax bill or Driving Licence. You will have 3 months in which to provide us with the proof of your address as we understand that as you are moving house, you are likely not to have any of the above with your new address for a few weeks.
Before you register – check practice catchment area
Our practice catchment area is shown below (click anywhere in the map to load the boundary). Unfortunately we are unable to accept registrations from patients whose address falls outside of the catchment.
When a patient registers at a Practice a transaction is sent to Primary Care Support England (PCSE) notifying them that they are a new patient. Your paper medical records from your previous Practice will then be sent to Primary Care Support England and transferred to your new Practice. The process of receiving your paper medical records normally runs smoothly but it can sometimes take up to three months. Once the Practice receives these records they are summarised so that everything the GP needs to know about your health is made available on our computer Medical Records.
Currently many Practices country wide including our own use a computer record system called the EMiS Clinical System. If a patient moves from one EMiS Practice to another, all relevant medical information is ready to be seen by the GP on the patient’s screen on the computer as soon as the patient has registered, although paper medical records are still thoroughly checked once they are received later.
