If you live within our practice area you can register. You will be advised by the practice on registering which doctor is currently taking on new patients. You are encouraged to see this doctor for continuity of care. Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. However, for Health Board administrative reasons your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the partners. You can request another doctor if you prefer, for example if a family member is already registered with one of the doctors or if you prefer a male or female doctor. We will do our best to respect your choice, but please bear in mind that specific doctors may not be immediately available.
When registering, please bring your birth certificate or passport and those of any other persons registering with you. You will be asked to complete a registration (GPR) form for each person registering with the practice.
Patients who wish to register at the surgery, can download the attached form, and bring along the completed form to the practice, with proof of identity and address during opening hours.
Once the completed GPR forms have been received you will be invited for a new patient medical. This usually involves an appointment with the nurse or health care support worker, which may be followed by an appointment with the doctor.
Patients are requested to bring to the medical:
- a completed new patient questionnaire
- a urine sample
It is important that patients keep this appointment as it provides an opportunity for the doctor or nurse to introduce themselves.
It also allows us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your previous practice to this one.
If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move. We can provide information about how to find a new practice.
