Any patient wishing to register with the practice has the right to do so and the following procedure applies:
Patients should provide their medical card and complete a 'New Patient Information Sheet'. If a medical card is not available a registration form will have to be completed.
Separate registration forms are needed for each member of a family .
Patients must produce two forms of identification. One should be photographic (passport or driving license) and the other should be a recent utility bill as proof of address.
If a Patient has a problem with identification then the matter will be passed to the Practice Manager for approval.
Once the registration form has been completed and signed and the proof of identity has been confirmed the Patient is immediately registered with the practice and can make a normal appointment with a clinician (Once their details have been updated on the computer system).
If the Patient cannot produce proof of identity at the time of completion of the forms they will be given back the registration form and asked to return with the proper documents at a later date. The Patient can leave the surgery with the registration forms.
