What you will need to bring if you are a student returning home...
Ideally you should bring your NHS card, issued either at birth or when you last registered with a doctor. If you cannot find this card we have registration forms at the surgery. We do need to know who your previous doctor was.

Please also see the relevant section on the website in respect of On line Access for booking appointments and requesting repeat medications

Additional information…

From April 2015, there is a new contractual arrangement whereby all patients will be allocated a named, accountable GP.

This is largely to reassure patients they have a specific GP within the Practice who is responsible for ensuring that work is carried out on their behalf.

Your named GP will be the GP who you are registered with and there will be no change to the care and services which are currently provided.

If you have a preference as to which GP you wish to be assigned, the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

Please submit any request, in writing, to the Practice Manager.

However, please note that this does not mean that you can always see your named GP, or that you are unable to see any other GP.

 

Once you have registered, you should also complete a brief health summary and questionnaire you will be given. For many patients, this will be lead to an appointment with one of our nurses for a New Patient Registration Medical. This allows us to introduce ourselves to new patients as well as recording any past medical history. It is an opportunity to record any on-going medication needs. These medicals only take about 15-20 minutes and will include checking a urine sample. The receptionist will endeavour to make this appointment at a convenient time to suit you - note early morning, afternoon and early evening appointments are available.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.
