Step 3 
Complete Registration Form 

The registration form will ask you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, previous address and doctor. This information helps the Primary Care Trust to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new surgery. The New patient questionnaire will ask you for some basic, lifestyle and allergy questions, so we can provide the best service possible from the start.

Please Note 
The new patient registration form is a legal document and needs to be

  • filled in
  • signed
  • and brought to the practice

Without a correctly completed and signed form the practice can not proceed to register you as a patient.

Step 4 
Placed on the Practice list 

Once you have completed and signed the form bring the form along to the surgery to be registered with the practice.
