New Patient Registration
The physical size of the surgery building means that all the rooms are in use every day of the week. We cannot employ new clinicians to attend to new patients. The lack of space also means that after a bank holiday we are unable to engage locum doctors to deal with the demand. With rising patient numbers the delay in obtaining an appointment will grow longer. This scenario is unsafe. In order to maintain levels of service to our current patients, we will cap our list at 13,000 patients. This means that we will be temporarily declining all new patient registrations. This will allow the surgery to maximize the care of our current patients. Should circumstances alter; the list declines or additional consulting rooms become available we would review the moratorium.
Online Registration With The Practice
We regret that we currently are not able to accept registrations. Please see the statement in the Home page.
Until further notice any online registrations submitted will not be processed.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. The questionnaire can be completed online using the link below.
Online "New Patient Health Questionnaire"
When you have completed the form, click the "Send" button to mail the form to us. Please note that we require both forms to complete your registration. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
