How to Register Your Household

You may register with us if you are living within our Practice boundary, and in some circumstances, you may be able to register even if you live outside our boundary. You will need to complete a registration form at the surgery and it is helpful if you bring your medical cards for this; if these have been mislaid we will still be able to help you. When you register with the practice you will be asked to complete a health questionnaire.

As no one is automatically registered with a surgery, it is important that both you and all members of your household register at the same time. We recognise the important role of carers in looking after dependent relatives; please make it known if you are caring for someone.

Live within boundary area?

To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.

 

Who Will Be Your Doctor

When you register we will confirm with you which of our surgeries is the most appropriate for you to attend. Your registration will be with the Practice. You may choose to see any of the Doctors at your registered surgery. For continuity of care in ongoing problems, we would encourage you to consult the same Doctor as far as possible.

 

Changes in Service Provision

Please note that the information provided on this website is current at the time of going to print, however, changes to the Service Provision will occur from time to time which will render the booklet to be temporarily out of date. To compensate, it will always be useful to observe the posters and leaflets on display in the Waiting Rooms. If you have a particular enquiry please ask a member of staff to help you.

 

Consulting with Young People

If you are under 16 years of age and need to consult with a health professional in this Practice we ask you to attend with a parent, your legal guardian or a responsible adult nominated by you or your parent/guardian. However, if you wish to see the Doctor or Nurse on your own this can be arranged. Sometimes, the Doctor or Nurse may ask permission from you and the adult who is with you if he or she may speak to you privately. All consultations are strictly confidential but if you are under 16 years and consult alone you will be asked if your parent/guardian is aware of the consultation. A parent or guardian will not be told of your consultation without your informed consent unless the clinician believes that to not tell a parent, guardian or third party of the consultation would be harmful to you or place you in danger. We are duty bound at all times to act in your best interests and recognise your rights and values in all consultations.

Useful information concerning the rights of young people can be obtained from the British Medical Association, and the Children's Legal Centre
