Patients aged 6 – 16 years – no proof of address is required but unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will only register children in this age group if a parent/guardian is already a registered patient or in the process of registering
FAILURE TO PROVIDE THE REQUESTED DOCUMENTATION MAY RESULT IN THE REFUSAL OF YOUR REGISTRATION.
Within two weeks of applying all applicants will receive a letter confirming their acceptance, their named GP and an appointment for a new patient registration examination. It is practice policy for all patients over five years of age to attend a new patient registration examination with a member of our nursing team as it may well take several months for us to receive your full medical records. It also gives us the opportunity to make sure that your vaccinations are up to date and that any regular medication is recorded on the computer. The doctors feel that it is very important for all new patients to attend these appointments with our healthcare assistant, who will take your medical and family history and carry out checks, such as blood pressure and urine analysis. PLEASE NOTE THAT A PATIENT'S REGISTRATION WITH THIS PRACTICE IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL THIS EXAMINATION HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT, THEREFORE FAILURE TO ATTEND MAY RESULT IN YOU BEING REMOVED FROM OUR PRACTICE PATIENT LIST.
All patients have the right to express a preference of Practitioner and a request should be put in writing to the Practice Manager. The practice will endeavour to comply with this right, although it might not always be possible, in which case an explanation will be offered. If you want to know the name of your allocated GP, please contact the Practice.
