Appointments for New Patients

You may be asked to make an appointment for a general health check with our Healthcare Assistant to allow us to complete the information we need for our registration process.  This appointment allows us to form a better picture of your medical history and current general health.  

 

Medication for New Patients

If you are on any medications on joining us, you willneed to make an appointment with a GP once you are registered before any medication can be prescribed by our GPs.

 

Change of Details (name, address, telephone number etc)

Please ensure you have given us a mobile phone number where possible and if you change your name, address or telephone number, please let us know.  We will then update our records. 

If you change your address, you must let us know.  If your new address is outside the practice area as shown on the map below, you will have to register with a practice which covers your address.  It is strongly advised that you do this quickly on moving home as we are unable to provide house calls and any other out of area service.
