You will be asked to complete a registration form for each person registering with the Practice. In addition, all patients will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire and attend a screening medical appointment with the Practice Nurse. This enables us to provide medical care in the interim period, whilst your medical records are transferred from your old Practice to new.

If you move to an address outside of the Practice area you will require to register with a new local Practice as soon as you move. We can provide information regarding how to find a new Practice.
Patients are registered with the Practice, not with an individual GP. For administrative reasons your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors; you can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either or all of your medical needs or on a case by case basis. However, not all of the doctors based within the Practice provide all services , furthermore specific requested doctors may not be immediately available.
