You will be allocated a registered GP, this is for administration purposes only and you can consult with any of our clinicians.

Important Information

If you are unsure whether your address lies within the area from which the practice can register patients, click on the tab below to view a map of our current practice boundary. Patients living more than 1.6km away from a Pharmacy are eligible to register as a Dispensing Patient, for more information click  here.

We ask for you to book a new patient medical within the first 4 weeks of registering. This will be with one of our Healthcare Support Workers who will discuss your smoking status and alcohol consumption, and will check your height, weight and blood pressure. You will need to bring a sample of your urine which will be tested.

Our patients can access us using an online messaging system called AskMyGP. You can access clinical advice quickly and submit your query online, we normally respond within a couple of hours if you submit your query by 5.00pm. To register, follow the links on our homepage, see the AskMyGP section for more information.

We offer online access to medical records for all our patients via Patient Access. This allows you to order repeat prescriptions, view your test results and medical history. Please complete the form to register, see the Patient Access section for more information.

Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a short summary of your GP medical records. It tells other healthcare staff about the medicines you take, and your allergies.  As the SCR is an electronic record, it gives healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you; to help provide you with safe treatment when you need to access care, either in an emergency or when your GP surgery is closed. Healthcare staff will ask for your permission every time  they need to look at your SCR. You can add more information to your SCR by completing the form below. The SCR is done automatically, if you choose not to have one, ask our Care Navigators for an opt-out form.

If you have any questions, please speak to one of our Care Navigators who will be happy to help.
