If you are new to the area and wish to register with a doctor, call at reception with your medical card and the receptionist will book a new registration appointment for you with one of the GP's or the Practice Nurse. If you cannot find your medical card the receptionist will give you a form to complete. Please remember that our receptionists have a very difficult and demanding job.
If you do appear to be kept waiting or appear to be asked one or two personal questions, we know you will understand that the receptionists are carrying out instructions to help you get the best from the practice and to help the practice run smoothly. You may be asked for some general details concerning your symptoms when requesting an urgent appointment or home visit. Please be assured that this information is treated in the strictest confidence and is only requested to offer you the appropriate service and to enable the doctor to plan home visits according to the urgency of the request
